Spelling with stones

December 8, 2011

As part of the Daily 5 in her classroom, Laura at The Grade Two Zoo gives students a box of small stones to “write” their words.  Students can work independently or with a partner. Try having students spell words individually before revealing their “creations” to a partner or you can have them build one word at a time collaboratively. Keep in mind that when you have students engage in word work, every student need not work on the same word or set of words. One of the easiest ways to differentiate this lesson is to have different word lists for different students. In addition, if you have students who need more support to complete the activity, print out the words in a large font so students can place stones over the letters and use the page as a template.
