I had a friend of mine who teaches 1st grade, ask me to make her a version of my Hands-On Phonics Dictionary, but she didn't want one where the students cut out and glue in.
So here it is!
It's a spelling journal - but so much more!
This is a great way to get students involved in spelling! This interactive journal is set up to help students enhance their writing. This is like my Hands-On Phonics Dictionary, except with this one, all you do is print, and bind!
We use our word journals every day in my class - my students have just come to know they need to look in their dictionaries before they ask how to spell anything! Every week we put in our Spelling and our sight words. They either highlight them (with a crayon!) or write them in if they are not already there!
Directions of how to set it up WITH pictures for examples.
