Can you guess that we worked hard on the ell chunk this week? :) I want to share a couple of ways to get some fun word work into your D5 time. I have posted on my "Speller Tellers" before, and it was such a hit last year that I decided to pull it in again for our study of ell words. Perfect match. You may have heard of this design as a cootie catcher or a fortune teller. A few years ago I decided to take this kid friendly fun foldable and turn it into a spelling practice activity. Here are the steps:
|start with a square piece of paper|
|fold corners in towards center|
|flip it over and fold new corners in towards center|
|Flip over and fin little pockets|
|label pockets with spelling words|
|flip over and write words on each triangle|
|write a positive note under each flap|
When finished, have kiddos get with a buddy. They pick one of the words on the top to spell. Rotate speller teller as buddy spells words. Practice a few words and then pick a flap to open and revel positive message!
Seriously, the kids did not want to put them down!!
|put fingers in pockets so you can rotate to different words|
We also practiced our ell words in a yummy way. Yes! Another "Eat Your Words!" This time my sweet team-mate had the great idea of using Jelly Beans for the e's!! Loved it!! And the kids did too!!
Well, thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into our little world! Have a wonderfilled weekend!!
I remember making those in grade school! We called them Fortune Tellers! Scholastic has a great teacher resource book out with a ton of phonics-related patterns using this fold-able pattern. My kids just love it! Thanks for sharing your Eat My Words with us! I am anxiously waiting to use the (oo) Fruit Loops one next week!

I recently discovered your blog and love the "eat your words" concept. I found several of them on your blog, but I wondered if you had a download of all of the eat your words that you've made. If so, that would be a great thing to have. Love all of your units and have downloaded several. You are awesome, thank you for sharing!
