    Spelling Contracts
    By Andrea

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I use what I call Spelling Contracts. I make up the contracts on a weekly bases. I hand the contracts out on Monday, and they are due on Friday. I also incorporate math and language arts in the contracts. I have some worksheets that I use every week, but I also add new sheets depending on the concept we are covering for the week. My students really enjoy the contracts, and because I assign them as homework, the parents like them too.

    I write out on the front page exactly what need to be done by Friday; then I use that page to calculate the student's grade. Another thing I do that helps me is to color code all my subjects. This way I can find the papers I need faster. My spelling is yellow. As the students get familiar with the contract, they can most of the worksheets by themselves.
