Here is our winter spelling game that is always fun.  Because it is editable, you can enter your own words.  Students take turns reading then writing the sight words.

    I attended your class today (1/19) at Cleveland East Professional Center and I tried to download the handouts, but the website that is listed did not come up. can you email me the site please. I so much enjoyed the presentation and took much away and I’d like to implement right away. Thank you and have a great week end. My school email is [email protected], but I prefer my personal one because the school email does not always get the emails sent to me–technology I guess ๐Ÿ™‚
