A Spelling Journal

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff

I always seem to be bombarded with questions such as, "Teacher! Teacher! How do you spell, ________?" It seemed like so many times the same words were being repeated over and over again. To discourage this, I give out a "spelling journal" to each of my students. At the top of each page, they write a letter of the alphabet. So page 1 would be "A", page 2 would be "B" and so forth. Now when a child asks me how to spell a word, they must write it correctly in their journal on the corresponding page. Before they ask me again in the future, they must look in the spelling journal to see of the word is already there or not. By the end of the year, their spelling journals have been a great resource!
