It's Wish List Wednesday again! Already! Geeze Louise, where does the time go in the summer? Well, for us, it was mostly spent shuffling the cars in for routine maintenance that turned into costly repairs. I HATE when that happens, but what can you do. Gotta be safe on the road, right?
So I'm just popping in today because I promised to keep up with Wish List Wednesday. And I really, truly believe in this product. I've been using Weekly Word Work for years in my classroom and I see HUGE gains by the end of the year. If you're NOT using CCSS, don't let the title scare you. The correlation is not on the product itself anywhere, but there is a separate chart for you that lists the skills if you need to document them in your plans.
I have this product for first, second, third, and fourth grades and they all follow the same basic format. Each covers a defined set of skills that are presented in the same format for the entire year. At the beginning of the year, I do a few questions each day with my students so that by the end of the week we've finished the whole week's work (one double sided page). By the end of the first quarter, they are pretty much ready to complete it on their own. It's such a versatile resource - I've used it for morning work, Daily Five word work, homework, and independent work. I do have some resources posted around the room that they can use to help them when they run into a skill they're not totally independent with yet. For us that always seems to be plurals and possessives.
By tackling the skills like this, you are really front loading them and pre-teaching. I love when it comes time to actually focus on a skill, like possessives, for example, and they pretty much already know it because of the exposure from Weekly Word Work!
So, for today's Wish List Wednesday, I'm linking up with Jen at Teacher by the Beach and offering each of my Weekly Word Work sets at 20% off, that's a saving of $4 on each set.
