HM Spelling!

I am super excited for this post because I've worked hard on my HM Spelling Homework packet so that I can upload it to my TpT store.  I don't have a whole lot in my store yet but I'm hoping to create quality products that can be used in the classroom.  After working on my packet, I have even more respect for all the teachers who create and sell things there.  It takes A LOT OF TIME!!!

I created these worksheets to go with the spelling words I use each week for my students.  At first when I made them, they were very basic but then I realized that I could "jazz" them up and share them with other teachers.  I used the extra spelling words from the wonderful ladies from Made for 1st Grade.  (Who by the way ROCK!!!!)

Some of the concepts covered include writing the word 4 times each to practice writing the spelling word, configuration/shape boxes to recognize the shape of the word (tall letters, little letters, and letters that extend below the line), and reading comprehension-- where the student has to read a sentence and figure out which of the spelling words would make that sentence make sense.


Now for the exciting part!  I will be doing a giveaway of my HM Spelling Homework packet for Themes 3-10.  To be entered in the drawing, you just have to do the follow things:
1) follow my blog and post a comment saying you do so
2) follow my TpT store and post a comment in this entry saying you do so

The giveaway will close on Monday, Feb. 27.  The winner will be announced and contacted that day.  *EDIT*  I decided to do this because I just got an email from TpT saying they will have a sale on Wed. (10%) so I'm also going to throw a sale so that you can get additional discount on top of that.  :)

In the meantime, you can download theme 7 (all three weeks) as a preview/freebie here.
