Idea to Practice Spelling Words

Notes From McTeach: A Little Low Tech

I came across the above blog post today. What a neat idea! Have the students create art using their spelling words. This is a great assignment! I thought about tweaking it some for TAKS. In ELA, there is an entire section of the workbook titled "Confusing Words". This section includes words such as "affect/effect", "lay/lie", and even words such as "compliment/complement". It would be neat to:

1. Assign the student a confusing word.
2. Have the student create a picture describing/defining that term.

For example, a picture for "lay" could be a book on a desk. Then have the student share why this picture defines their term.

Thanks to McTeach for the great idea!
