I don't go back to school for another month, but those of you in the United States are going back now. To celebrate (is that the right word?) Teachers Pay Teachers is having a sale and I'm participating! Everything in my store is on sale for 20% off August 4 - 5. TpT is topping that off to make it a 28% off sale! If you've had your eye on something, now is the time to buy. Click on the picture below to go to my store and shop away.
One of my favourite items to use nearly right at the beginning of the year is my Word Work Bundle. It contains 3 activities: Scrabble Spelling, Place Value Spelling, and What's your Word Worth?
In Scrabble Spelling, you can use "scrabble tiles" I printed to build your word. After writing the word (correctly of course!) on the recording sheet, you can add up the value of each letter.
Place Value Spelling is similar, but with base 10 blocks corresponding to each letter of the alphabet. There are three options:
- tens and ones
- hundreds, tens and ones
- thousands, hundreds, tens and ones
This is a little bit more challenging math for some of the longer words.
What's your Word Worth? involves money. I've seen this idea before, but always with American coins. I created this using Canadian pennies, nickles, dimes and quarters. A second option replaces the pennies with loonies. Again, you write your word on the recording sheet and add up it's value. I do have some plastic money that can be used if needed.
You can buy each separately, or bundled. The bundle is a great deal and with the 28% off sale its even better!
Happy Back to School!
