    I have a spelling center. In the center are games (Scrabble, Boggle) and assignment cards. Assignments from the cards are worth 20 points each. Kids have to do 3 assignments, but can do up to 5. Some of the assignments are -
    ** Write one sentence with each word
    ** Write a story using all of your spelling words
    ** Make spelling flash cards
    ** Complete a spelling word crossword puzzle
    ** Complete a spelling word search
    ** Review your spelling cards three times with a buddy (buddy has to sign off each time it is done)
    ** Play a spelling (Scrabble or Boggle) game using as many spelling words (old or new) as you can. Write the words you spell on a sheet to turn in.


    In addition to the center. Each child has to add the spelling words to his/her portable word wall him his/her agenda each week (I write the words on the board). I make puzzles using teachnology web site. Also, as a class, we play hangman once a week using spelling words we have had from the year so far.
