Snapshots ~ 365 days of us…{7/98}

Each week that is not a review week in our spelling program the younger 3 girls complete spelling choice activities four days a week. The choices vary each week and range from rainbow words/trains, spelling your words on a telephone keypad, to sidewalk chalking your words. I found the spelling choice activity pack on my favorite teacher resource site, Teachers Pay Teachers.

Today for Montana’s spelling activity she picked to play the game Scrabble. I told her if she could use any of her spelling words in the game from this weeks list she would get double points. She did use one word, OPEN, in the game. I gave her 1/2 of her double points since the spelling word was OPENED. Since this was her first time playing Scrabble, we only played to 70 points. But you know what? She beat me 67-71, spelling the word POOF on a double word spot! I think I want a re-match!
