Multiple Chances...

Last year I thought I'd try something I've never done with spelling.  I decided to give my students multiple chances to study and get 90% or above on their spelling test for the week.  Now, I want you to know, I use Spelling City for online practice, grammar, writing, and test taking to make my life a little easier.  I assigned no paper homework for spelling last year.  The conclusion I came to is that I love and still intend to use Spelling City, but no more freebies!  I should know that nothing in life is free, right?  Many of the students didn't practice or study for their spelling tests, and with recall they couldn't accomplish it without re-studying their words.  So, what I've figured out...there was no accountability!  I've revised the program, added some paper work and accountability, and it's a one shot deal!  Show me what you know! If you haven't checked out Spelling City lately, give it a whirl and let me know what you think.  It will be some of the best pennies (or dollars) you spend in your classroom this year!  Heidi
