Roll and Spell Homework

A couple of weeks ago I switched-up my nightly spelling homework. I found some adorable ideas on Mrs. Reynold's blog Oh, My Little Classity Class. Her Roll and Spell Cards are so cute and I knew my students would love them. The previous forms I had been using were just plain boring and did not include any space for my kiddos to practice their word wall words each night. So I adapted the ideas I got from Mrs. Reynold's Roll and Spell cards to work in a four night homework format with a matching recording sheet. My students love their new spelling homework and their Friday assessment scores have improved! Now that's what I call a win, win - no matter how you ROLL!

You can grab my new FREEBIE Roll and Spell Homework forms HERE.
