At times I become very frustrated when correcting papers. I often self-talk "How can this student NOT be putting the final e on a CVCe word?" or "Come on they know Cake is not spelled Cack!"
I have to breathe deeply, sip my Diet Coke and remember that they are only 8 years old and the process of spelling and writing can be daunting.
When writing students must encode, or retrieve and produce letters and symbols. By the time the student gets to handwriting and correct formation so much has already taken place in their brains, its no wonder they put their heads down on the desk!
I try my hardest to incorporate fun ways to practice the sound retrieval and letter production process during the day. One of my favorite ways is by writing Top Ten Lists . Students can do this activity when done with work, for homework, morning work or center time. I love looking at their illustrations ...Jen
