I have been doing word study for 20 years. I have tons of ideas for effective stage and pattern practice at home and in the classroom. I will try to get things posted. If you have ideas for setting up a word study station in the class, please post them.
SETTING UP SPELLING STATION ACTIVITIES
PAINTING (Writing words) WITH Q-TIPS
Connect 4 Spelling (for 3 and 4 letter words)
Add the word
Wacky Words - rainbow pencils that write more than one color and glitter crayons or metalic crayons
Stamping letters with stamp pads - the Dollar Tree has small sets sometimes, but I get most of them from Ebay.
