More Downloadable Word Study Tools
Yesterday I was working with some grades 3-5 teachers and a 5th grade teacher asked if it is necessary for her to have a word wall. That led us into a discussion about using personal word walls with those students who still need this support. Click here to read about one way to use a personal word wall and to download a reproducible for your students’ writer’s notebooks or journals.
In my last blogpost I shared some word family cards that you can use to help students learn the 37 most common phonograms (rimes, chunks). Today I am providing some more downloadable word cards. This is a set of the 150 Most Frequent Words. These are words that account for a large percentage of words in print but often have irregular spelling patterns. Click here for more information and to download these cards.
On another note, I wanted to let you know that I have posted my schedule for upcoming BER seminars that are open to the public. Click here for a list of cities where I will present during the 2011-2012 school year. In addition to these public seminars, I also present workshops and lead professional development for schools and districts across the country. Feel free to contact me for more information.
