Oh, if I only lived in Texas, I would love to visit Marcy's classroom! I can't get enough of her cute, hands-on ideas. You can check them out for yourself over at Saddle Up for 2nd Grade!
Be careful! Don't get lost in all of those cute activities! We are lucky to have Marcy here with us today, where she shares a quick and effective way for handling students who like to think of their teacher as a walking dictionary.
If I had a dime, a nickel, or even a penny for every time I heard the words, "How do you spell........" I would probably be basking in the warm Hawaiian sun right now. And of course, it's a real treat when that catch phrase becomes contagious and every little being in your classroom needs something spelled AT THE SAME TIME. I swear, at this point in my teaching career, I can simultaneously tie someone's shoe, tell someone that yes, they can go to the bathroom, and spell a word across the room. It's an art, people...and I know you can relate.
Marcy has a quick tip that will have you yelling, "Yehawwwww!" (On the inside, of course! You won't want to interrupt your busy writers while they are hard at work!) You'll want to take a peek at this post before you head back to work...I know that this is a strategy I will be putting into practice immediately!
Hey ya'll! Its Marcy from Saddle Up For 2nd Grade.
Thanks Marcy! It was great having you as a guest today! Have a great week!
