Our students have been practicing spelling using a program called Scientific Spelling (as mentioned in a previous blog post). To aid students in this process, second grade teachers have started recording little videos that allow students to go back and review a rule at any time. They used the app Showbie to house the videos and students can view them during Reader's Workshop time. Students are also assigned little practice activities they can access throughout the week. In the future, we look forward to even having students create some of their own videos explaining their understandings of how a certain spelling rule or guideline works.
