Grade 1 and 2 students have fortnightly spelling words as part of the Words Their Way spelling program. Each fortnight we provide the students with opportunities to learn their words in different ways, encouraging flexibility in thinking and opportunities at all times.
This week the students had the option of using mini whiteboards to practice their spelling or to use bean bags and throw, catch or drop as they practiced their words. Some students worked with a partner and spelled their words together and others threw and caught the beanbag independently. Some students dropped a beanbag from a height and tried to speed spell their word before it hit the ground.
Below are a few pictures of our students having way too much fun while learning how to spell. Feel free to come along and join in our active spelling program, which usually takes place on Friday mornings during the term.
