And here's a quick freebie I've been fine-tuning and wanted to pass along. I know many of you use similar lists of assignment options for students to complete to review their spelling words. I call our classroom version a Word Study Menu. Students can select any choices from Appetizers, Entrees, Side Dishes & Desserts - completing 100 points worth of work.

I opt to have students study one list of words (20 words plus 5 bonus words) over the course of 2 weeks. The spelling preview is on Monday and they grade their own the same day. The following Thursday is a quiz on the meanings of the words and Friday is the spelling quiz. I find that they're more likely to actually remember the words if we spend more than the traditional week. Of course, students love choice, so this is a nice way to give them some options.
Also - since there is no way we can get to all 30 lists from our Scott Foresman series, I give the students two choices and let them vote. They selected Compound Words this time - one of my favorites, too.
