I would like to know how everyone does their spelling. In the past I have had individualized spelling lists, with each studnet having 10 words. Although there are a lot of things I like about this, I still feel like they are doing more memorizing rather than thinking of the spellig of each word. I think if they all had the same words, it would be easier to do class activities to really emphasize the rules and phonics that go with the words for the week. Does that make sense?? SO...I would like to know not only how you create spelling lists, but some of the activities and things you do without those words during the week. Also, do you give a spelling test each week? When in the school year do you start spelling? Thanks!
