Since we’ve started this little young thing, I have GREATLY neglected my gradebook! Papers are still getting checked, but I’ve been slacking at actually entering them…. SOOOOOO, my gradebook and I are spending some quality time this Tuesday. She was feeling more than a little neglected....
BUT, I need a break! So I thought I would pop in to quickly share this with you!
Over the summer I came across this super cute Word Jail on Mrs. Cooley’s First Grader at Last Blog! I immediately knew this idea was for me! (I mean how many times can I circle thay!) I thought this would be a great way to make correct spellings stick!

My Word Jail usually hangs beside my Smartboard so we can lock up offending words at any random moment! However, I was without a camera and decided to just roll her up and bring her home to get a photo!
The image below will take you to a download of the words my class has done so far. I uploaded the Powerpoint file so you can modify it for you own words. The font is Smiley Monster available HERE!

Oh well, back to gradebook….ugh!
