Here's a FREE Speller's Choice Menu that can be used with any spelling list. The kids love it because there's a variety of activities to choose from, and teachers love it because these activities manage to incorporate phonics, grammar, writing AND math!!! :) I just place it in a sheet protector in their take-home binder for them to use with homework every night.
Outlaw "I'm Done!" I LOVE this post from Kady at The Teacher Trap. She makes some really good points and includes suggestions for helping kids change their mindsets about rushing through their assignments. Awesome!
