How I Use It
We use this program as part of our Guided Reading time, it requires minimal set up, and best of all no worksheets! We use this program as part of our Guided Reading time, it requires minimal set up, and best of all no worksheets! My students use this program for one of their 15 minute rotations during Guided Reading. I am able to run groups, and they are engaged in the program practicing their spelling and vocabulary words. I do spelling one week and vocabulary the next week. Once they finish the required activities I assigned, they may choose the activities they want to keep practicing the rest of the week.
My Take
I really like how easy the set up was and best of all no worksheets! I do wish it could leveled a little easier to cater to different needs. My lower kids, I have to create a separate list with less words and then choose the activities again. Having more challenging activities to choose from for my higher kids would be great too!
