@Mrs_P_teaches (Crystal): So far I am using banana-grams (3 games), blank word searches, margnet letter sets, chalk & chalkboards, playdoh, whiteboards & whiteboard crayons. We started using the Promeathean Board also (just the blank screen) for 2 people to spell/play word games on like hangman etc.

@mr_brim (Steve)- I have about 30 word work centers, and will try to post most of them--here are some docs that go along---I do use computers since I have a 2/1 ratio in my room.

The words come from Fry's 300 site words. This file is copied into a duotang. When they pick a unit and an activity they color them both one color. This way I can see which unit they did and which activity they chose.
Here are some pictures to show you how it's all organized.

Here's where the supplies are kept.


Here is my Spelling City Word Lists for WTW and Word Work in Daily 5. The WTW lists are all sorted into the four groups I have in my classroom. They are labelled with ln (Letter Name) and ww (Within Word) for the red and yellow additional books to buy.
The Fry's 300 High Frequency Words are labelled according to the Units 1 - 30
Hope this can help someone.
