Drill is not a dirty word

Reading a fellow bloggers post today saw me digging out an old activity i had buried away. It makes you think of all the possibilities out there.

I can’t believe that I am about to say this. Students do need time to practice skills. To an extent they need a level of ‘drill’ practice. This is a fun way to incorporate that type of practice. I have seen it also done with a colour appointed to each number and simple instructions to write the word in that colour.

I hope I don’t have to use look/write/cover/check in my classroom. Not when there are so many other more creative not to mention FUN ways to get students to practice their spelling.
