When you think of elementary worksheets, do you feel like this teacher? Just a wee bit overburdened?
The spelling worksheets on this page are great for your spelling class, because they help students learn and they save you, the teacher, a lot of work! We call these Swap Sheets.™
How do these spelling pages work? The idea is quite simple.
1. A student chooses ten spelling words of her choice. (You decide if the words are review words or new words.)
2. Then the student rewrites the words, scrambling the letters or following some other instruction printed on the page.
3. She cuts apart the worksheet, removing her original word list -- for the answer key -- as instructed on the page.
4. She gives the rest of the page to another student to solve.
5. He completes the page and hands it back to her to check.
