Hi friends! Are you looking for things to get ready for your next school year now? I have a fairly easy prep idea freebie on my blog to use during the daily 5 word work station! I’ve been having my students take responsibility of learning their own words. Each student has their own folder with their words in it. I color code the words when highlighting what they know/spell! Yellow is they can read it, blue is they can spell it——and since yellow and blue make green—GREEN means they can read AND spell it!
