What do you think of doing word work as a daily arrival activity? I am worried it may be boring to them, but it is something we need to do regularly. It would not be word family stuff, but HF word work. I am going to be adding 5 new word wall words a week. I would write on the board which activity to do each day and they'd have a morning work journal specifically for this. So they would be able to do: Rainbow Words BIG letters, or little letters Stamping them Using them in a sentence Write it 5 times Word Pyramids I may also teach them how to do cool lettering like block letters, bubble letters, curlicues and so forth- depending on how good their fine motor skills are. and so forth... any other ideas? Any reason NOT to do this? I would do it 3-4 days a week when they come in first thing.
