What type of materials do you use and what words do you use in Word Work for third grade? I used my spelling words but it seems to get old fast. I find that third grade is too advanced to use basic words but at the same time I want words relevant to what I am teaching. Any suggestions will be appreciated!

This year I switched from our old Spelling lists to use Words Their Way. If you’re not familiar, it’s a spelling program that uses pre-assessment inventories to figure out where in the spectrum of spelling development each student is, and where they need instruction. Students are then placed in groups that correspond to the appropriate level they’re at. I have 4 groups, and meet with them a couple times during the week to work on their group of words. The framework of the spelling relies on learning different spelling patterns and sorting words to fit into the different categories. That way, students of all levels are challenged and don’t get bored with the generic word lists.

Along with what our friend just said about Words Their Way, the sorts that are an integral part of the program, can be worked on during Word Work. The program describes lots of different kinds of sorts and way to work on the spelling patterns assigned to them. Makes the practice supportive of what you’re teaching.

I am in grade 4. The students use Banagram, Scrable, tautogrammes.
