We Love Text Spelling

I need to take a break from checking two weeks' worth of first and second grade math papers... so I will share something fun that we did this week to practice our spelling words!

First, if you haven't heard of Teacher Tipster, you seriously are missing out. I probably could watch his videos all day... here is a little sample for you!

This week, I tried out my first Teacher Tipster tip! I saw this on someone's blog (I can't remember whose!!) and followed it back to the Printables section of the Teacher Tipster website. I printed out his Blackberry-like templates for the kids to practice their spelling words. I have a very chatty and noisy class, but you would have been amazed at the focus they had during Text Spelling this week.

If I could get them to be that engaged all day, I would just hug myself. Oh also in this picture, you can see one friend who had his phone taken away because he was whining that he didn't get the color he wanted. We don't whine in first and second grade. :)

I'm going to add this to the Word Work station of Daily Five, if I ever get around to introducing it... I really fell off the Daily Five train. Maybe I can get myself back on again!


  1. What a fabulous idea! I may just have to borrow it ;)

  2. I love this idea. I'm sure my kinders would go crazy over "texting" their sight words. How have I never heard of the Teacher Tipster before?! He is hilarious-especially his lining up song!

  3. The last time i contacted Dr. Abolo was when my husband to bee lift me for another lady and i contacted him, and he brought him back with his powerful spell within a lighting speed. Then we got married, as we moved on for some years we had a big quarrel as a result of not bearing him a child then i remember that Dr.Abolo is there to help me out, quickly i contacted him again and he said i shouldn't worry that everything is going to be okay. In some few months time i went for check up and discovered that i was pregnant, then me and my husband went back into the good terms we where before. Dr. Abolo has made me believe that there is a man like God in this earth who never fails . So to those of you who need help in different area in your relationship should contact Dr. Abolo now on {} or call him (+2347052534659) because he never fails.

  4. Am Tanya Albert from United State I was heartbroken that my boyfriend decided to leave the relationship, so I had the Retrieve A Lover spell cast. with Dr Ekpiku Within a week of the spell casting, he called "just to talk." After some pleasant talks and catching up, he asked to see me again. I felt he had started to turn around. I decided to give him a chance just to see. now we are happily married and He is absolutely crazy about me, i thank Dr Ekpiku for bringing back my ex, if you need his help you can contact him via
