I teach in a school which is completely comprised of multiage classrooms. This comes with its challenges, of course, but with a different perspective, many of those challenges turn themselves into benefits!
I send the home on the weekly newsletter I send home on Fridays. This week I'm starting some spelling homework on Monday's and weds and they will get the words then.
They see the list when it goes home with the kids on Monday night :)
I send home a weekly list on Monday. My coworker sends hers on Friday. You can see all my spelling lists at this link: https://sites.google.com/site/riverviewfirstgrade/spelling-lists This is my web page for my families.LoriLittle Priorities
I always send them home on Monday in my weekly newsletter, but I also send home a list inside a miniature folder that has a list for the students to work with along with other vocabulary they are working on. email@example.com
I teach spelling patterns, but I do mostly individualized spelling by need. I don't send a list home.Jill
My kids have a "Word Wizards" booklet. Every Monday I introduce the phonics pattern for the week and we brainstorm words on the "Focus" page. Then they take a pretest. I grade those and make individualized study lists based on how they did. This is in their Word Wizards book too. They take them home to study, so that's how the parents get the words.
They're on the weekly newsletter on Mondays and we test on Fridays.Now I'm curious . . .
