Fixing-Up Spelling in a Writer’s Notebook

I created another video about one more spelling strategy a colleague told me about to help some of my struggling spellers with the words they frequently misspell in their writing. (I’m only going to employ this strategy in my kids’ Idea Notebooks after I’ve secured their permission to write in their notebooks since I always place my comments on sticky notes; I never write directly on the pages of their notebooks without permission.)

I'm the author of Craft Moves (Stenhouse Publishers, 2016) and the co-author of Jump Into Writing (Zaner-Bloser, 2021), Welcome to Writing Workshop (Stenhouse Publishers, 2019), and Day By Day (Stenhouse, 2010).

  1. I’m a little behind in your posts, but I was wondering if you would be willing to share the type of spelling program you use with your students? We have a district mandated spelling book that I abhore, so I ventured out on my own this year with Words Their Way. While I love the individualization it gives the kids in support of RTI, I’m not seeing great strides in their personal improvement. I would love to know more about your personal spelling lists etc.
