  • Task Cards for Halloween: E-e-e-e! Spelling


    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!

  • Task Cards: Spelling (Grades 4-5)


    Each of the 20 task cards in this set contains a sentence with three or more bold-print words.  One of the words is misspelled.  Students are challenged to identify the word, and then write its correct spelling on the answer sheet provided.  Another unexpected misspelling is located on one of the cards.
    The cards feature a total of 75 different words that were chosen from various often-misspelled word lists, 4th-5th grade level spelling lists, and terms likely to be encountered across the curriculum.
    In addition to their role as task cards, these items can work as bell ringers.  They also provide students with a chance to sharpen their proofreading skills.
    A cover card, student instruction card, and answer sheet are printed on the next-to-last page.
    Answer keys are on the last page along with clipart credits.
