Now, onto another option during our class' Daily 5 Word Work: Scrabble Tile Spelling.
Students use Scrabble letter tiles to spell and add up their word's point value.
One thing I noticed was that letter tiles are VERY expensive! They are popular for crafts, so therefore their price is pretty steep for a D5 center item (for me).
You have a few options:
Protiles and got the amazing sets that are pictured above- four of them at a discounted teacher price- yay! I barely have time to do laundry, so rummaging through our city's thrift stores and/or garage sales was not on the agenda. I was happy to pay and received some top-quality tiles in complete sets :)
When kids use any of these tiles to build their words, I have them record their answers on the Scrabble Tile Worksheet:
I love this center for similar reasons to Word Worth- it is so great to have kids practice their spelling and necessary math skills all at the same time! Plus, the addends are all small in this activity, so it's a great way to practice mental math, adding more than 3 addends, counting on, and more!
