Spelling Word Journal

In an attempt to take freshen up our spelling word activities and began composition instruction, we began a spelling word journal. 3 times per week, the children chose one on the week's assigned words, draw a picture, and write 2 to 3 sentences about what they have drawn. I stress capitalization, punctuation, and expressing a complete thought. I've found this to be a great creative outlet and a wonderful to allow the children to combine penmanship, grammer, spelling, and composition skills.
