    Eee!SpellingC1

    Early each October, I start seeing signs all over the place, “Workers Needed for Haunted Cemetary,” or “Haunted Cematary 2 mi.”
    Years ago, someone clued me in on the spelling ditty that goes, “She cried E-E-E! when she passed the cEmEtEry,” so naturally I always notice and obsess over these public displays of bad spelling. I was on the verge of purchasing one of those huge permanent black magic markers (the other teacher’s pet) and turning loose my desire to correct when I was distracted by the realization that many words have 3 e’s in their spellings. Then I found a bunch of 4-e words. To my surprise, I Googled-up a group of 5-e’s. The community’s bad spellers were spared, and I had an idea for a fun Halloween spelling activity for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.
    Of course, all age groups and attitudes are invited to have a go at E-e-e-e!! Spelling!

    SongCoverTG

    Classifying the titles of children’s songs as Sentences or Fragments is not as easy as it sounds. As a matter of fact, it requires some careful observation. The song titles listed on this set of 20 cards (two per card) are more than enough to cause 4th-6th graders to break out in a bout of thinking.
    The challenge lies in the fact that song titles can be complete sentences, but they are not written in the everyday form with full punctuation and capitalization. Students have to stop and think about the requirements of a proper sentence to see how the song title measures up.
    These cards, also usable as bell ringers, are a fun way to review and recheck this skill, especially for older students who will enjoy a look back at the music that was once at the top of their charts.
    A cover card, a student instruction card, and an answer sheet are printed on the next-to-last page of the file.

    Answer keys are located on the last page.
