A piggy bank for words!
This is a large pig that I printed, trimmed, taped together and laminated to create a visual word bank for students. I use this for a variety of activities. I use Sitton Spelling and will add our most current Priority words to it for students to use and practice spelling correctly. I also will give students a list of several words that they must use in answering questions (characters, feelings, theme, etc.). Another use is to list words with tricky spellings that will be needed for an assignment.
I am a Special Education teacher and work primarily with 4th grade, but you never know what other grade level may be added to my case load through out the year!
This is my 7th year teaching - wow has that time flown by! I work in an integrated co-teaching environment and resource room as well.
I hope that you find my materials useful to you and that they benefit your students.
