Word Work in the Daily 5 Classroom

The Daily 5

by Gail Boushey & Joan Moser "The 2 Sisters"

During Word Work, we focus on spelling and vocabulary work with children, creating a richly literate environment that provides essential and often-skipped practice time. (The Daily 5, p 117)

During the Word Work time, students experiment with spelling patterns, memorize high-frequency words, and develop a genuine curiosity and interest in new and unique words. By playing with words, word patterns, word families, prefixes, suffixes, and so on, students hone their knowledge of words and increase their writing skills.

Remember!

Word Work is not a spelling program, it is merely the time to practice moving words into long term memory. Kinesthetic activities are an opportunity for students to practice the words with their "muscle memory."
