Seven Steps to Super Spelling

Excerpted from Super Spellers: Seven Steps to Transforming Your Spelling Instruction by Mark Weakland.

“In literature and lore, seven is a magic number. There are seven dwarfs, seven seals, seven deadly sins, Seven Wonders of the World, and so on. Although some might claim it takes magic to help our kids become better spellers, readers, and writers, I’ve found that it really just takes a bit of time and effort. But the results may seem magical! Thus, I present the overview of how to transform spelling instruction as seven ‘magical’ steps:

  1. Understanding Theory and Practice. The first step asks us to understand that spelling is developmental, that specific types of instruction lead to greater amounts of growth, and that teaching children how to spell includes teaching them to be strategy users. We must also understand that sounds, patterns, and meanings lie at the heart of spelling instruction, that poor spelling and poor reading are connected, and that because spelling is at the heart of the reading process, the most effective spelling instruction teaches children to read.
  2. Assess Spelling Knowledge. Assessing spelling knowledge starts at the beginning of the year with spelling inventories, writing sample analyses, and reading assessments. It continues through the year with weekly spelling quizzes and tests, notes on word study activities, and the regular examination of writing samples. Assessment is essential for understanding where students are developmentally as well as for differentiating instruction. When instruction and assessment work together, such as during test-study-test cycles, retrieval practice, and instant error correction, greater learning occurs.
  3. Focus Scope and Sequence. A focused scope and sequence helps students achieve spelling and reading mastery. To focus, slow the rate of movement through your spelling sequence, narrow the scope of what you teach, and reteach information as necessary, especially for students in the early stages of spelling development who must master the essential skill of matching letters to sounds. Focus also means creating word lists that support instruction by taking previously published lists and modifying them to create new ones.
  4. Bring More Words. To create more effective instruction, bring many words to your lessons. These words are built from the sounds, patterns, affixes, roots, or conventions that you picked for your refocused lessons and spelling lists. Bringing in more words enables you to teach a wider variety of word-study activities, use a wider variety of assessment techniques, and more easily differentiate for two or three groups of students.
  5. Teach Strategies. Spelling strategies are crucial if children are to learn how to spell rather than what to spell. Thus, teach children how to self-monitor and be metacognitive, as well as how to use strategies while writing, reading, and taking a test. The strategies you teach can include using sounds and letters, using mnemonics, using meaning, using visualizing, and using patterns (analogy), including the seven syllable types.
  6. Teach Activities. Teach spelling through activities that show how sound, pattern, and meaning are at the heart of spelling, as well as activities that can incorporate a variety of developmental stages, from sound-letter matching to etymology and morphology.
  7. Build Opportunities. Finally, build opportunities to connect spelling to reading, from presenting decodable sentences to giving students the chance to read in as many places and in as many ways as possible. Also, build opportunities to connect spelling to writing, especially in authentic writing situations, from journal writing to digital platforms, such as writing apps and online blogs.”

Creating a Space for Writing Success

Jennifer Jacobson believes that writers’ workshop is the answer to a thriving writing classroom where students start an assignment asking, Who is my audience? Or How can I best approach this subject? Rather than the dreaded, How long does it have to be?  In order to have a successful writers’ workshop, however, you need to start by creating a space that sets the tone, supports student stamina, and—most importantly—inspires.

Think of your classroom as studio space—an environment that supports the experimentation and utilization of many tools, models, and ideas.” –Jennifer Jacobson

Based on her experience teaching successful writers’ workshops in communities across the country, Jacobson shares what she’s learned in her new book, No More, “How Long Does It Have to Be?” Fostering Independent Writers in Grades 3–8. Here are some of her tips on creating a space that sets the stage for writing success.

The Meeting Area (Where Writers Huddle)

The meeting area is a means for modeling writing. It is an inviting space for students to come together to collaborate with comfortable, flexible seating, such as carpet or carpet squares, beanbags, pillows, etc. Have an easel ready with paper for saving anchor charts and ask the students to occasionally be the scribes. The meeting area should also be near shelves with mentor texts ready to reference when you want the students to look at examples of author craft. “During the writing time, the meeting area transforms to the place for perusing mentor texts for examples and inspiration or perhaps it becomes an isolated spot for peer conferences,” (Jacobson 2019).

Conference Area

For conferences, Jacobson recommends setting up a designated conference area for students to come to the teacher, rather than the teacher circulating around the room dropping in on them while they write. Students might spend more time anticipating the arrival of the teacher and preparing what to say, rather than writing. “Writing requires concentrated thinking, and that requires turning inward,” (Jacobson 2019). Consider setting up a sign-up sheet for students to schedule time to come to you. Set up a small table with some chairs and the following supplies: your writer’s notebook, an assessment binder with a divider for each student, sticky notes, and mentor texts.

Supply Area

When setting up a supply area, you might want to first decide if you want students to write longhand on paper, or on a digital device. Many teachers are split on this topic. Jacobson has a list of pros and cons of using only paper or only technology in No More, “How Long Does It Have to Be?” You may want to give students a choice. Other supplies to consider are: extra paper, sticky notes, graphic organizers, scissors and tape, editing pens and pencils, highlighters, egg timers, rubrics, USB drives, and other reference resources, such as a thesaurus, topic grids, etc.  

 This is only a fraction of the wonderful ideas from Jacobson’s book that you can use to support writers as they discover their voices and take charge of their own learning. For more about how to start successful writers’ workshops that foster independence, go here to pick up No More, “How Long Does It Have to Be?”

Number Sense Routines Tips from Jessica Shumway

Do you practice number sense routines in your classroom? Or are you new to number sense routines? Jessica Shumway, author of the popular book Number Sense Routines, Grades K-3 and her newest follow-up Number Sense Routines, Grades 3-5 has offered up her expertise to provide guidance on how to get started or navigate any of those sticky points you might come across in your instruction. Here are a few tips you might find handy!

How do you decide which number sense routine to do?

Knowing which routine to do really depends on your class, where you are, and your purpose. For example, I often start with dot cards at the beginning of the school year. I think that the dot cards are a great platform to get kids talking about math, valuing each other’s ideas and understanding that they can learn from each other, that they can really start to expand their own concepts and notions of number by listening to other people’s ideas.

What if students have difficulty explaining their mathematical thinking?

Some students have difficulty explaining their mathematical thinking, especially in the beginning of the school year or if students are not used to justifying their solutions. Here are some strategies to consider when students have difficulty explaining their thinking or when you know they have an answer but don’t know how to explain what they know:

  • Break it down. Help students step back and be metacognitive about what they’re doing. Ask, What was the first number you saw? What was the first thing you thought about? What did your brain tell you to do next? Just helping them break it down helps makes it easier for them.
  • Turn and Talk. Turn and talk is a strategy where students voice their understanding with a partner. This strategy helps students talk out their ideas and then when they come back to whole group, they’re able to voice what they notice and what they are trying to explain.
  • Work together. Sometimes students will start an idea that they don’t know how to justify, so we have all the students build on that idea together. Through working as a community, you build that knowledge together. When students realize they play a really important role in these discussions, the better they get at it. The more opportunities they have to turn and talk, the more opportunities that they have to justify their thinking.

How do you get students to listen and learn from each other?

Listening and learning from each other is key. That’s where students really start to expand their own notions of number and can really learn a lot from other students. Small groups are where I really get that math talk and get those conversations going. It’s a way to help them listen to one another’s ideas. I ask them questions like, Stop your own thinking for just a minute and let’s really make sense of what this other person is saying, or, Did you understand what Jimmy was saying? Can you explain it in your own words? At the beginning of the year, you often see that kids are still trying to be creative, still trying to get their ideas out there, and there’s a place for that. But by asking these questions and using strategies such as turn and talk, you’ll eventually help them to tune into each other’s ideas and make sense of each other’s thinking. It’s a beautiful moment when that starts happening.

What skills do teachers need to facilitate mathematics discussions around a number-sense routine?

Find ways to deepen your own content knowledge. The more you know about mathematics, number sense, problem solving, and reasoning about numbers, the more you can pinpoint those pieces to highlight and then move everybody’s number sense forward. Knowing your content is a major piece in being able to facilitate those discussions.

Teacher questioning strategies is another skill to have when you’re using these number-sense routines. One way to start is to ask questions such as, Why? or ask them to explain their thinking. Not just, Oh, yes, you’ve got the correct answer but how do you know that? Instead ask, Can you justify your thinking? Prove it to us. Convince us that this is what comes next in the sequence. Slowly build your questioning strategies over time and you’ll see your students’ discussions grow.

Do you use routines for formative assessments?

Number-sense routines are a really effective formative assessment. You learn so much about where your students are in their thinking when you have these discussions about relationships among numbers. For example, when you highlight a big idea to the class and ask them who understands, but no one responds, that lets me know that I need to set up some experiences where the big idea can be highlighted in a way that’s more accessible to everybody. And then we can follow up on that idea let it emerge in other situations.

Getting to know Amy Stewart, author of Little Readers, Big Thinkers

Amy Stewart is the author of the new book, Little Readers, Big Thinkers: Teaching Close Reading in the Primary Grades. We sat down with Amy, recently, for a discussion about her experience as a teacher and what inspired her to write a book about close reading instruction in the primary grades. If you’re a primary grade teacher or administrator, you might want to read how her book can help teachers show students that reading can be fun and meaningful!

Q: Tell us about yourself, Amy.

A: I am currently a literacy coach in Bensenville, which is a suburb right near O’Hare in Chicago. This is my fourth year working as a literacy coach for grades K–2. Prior to that, I taught kindergarten in the same district for five years. I’ve also been a third-grade teacher in a small town in Indiana. I am currently finishing my doctorate at Judson University in Elgin, Illinois.

Q: When did you first start thinking about the topic for your new book, Little Readers, Big Thinkers?

A: During my first years as a kindergarten teacher, we started to work through the shifts of the CCSS regarding close reading.  My colleagues and I knew that close reading was important, but we were not quite sure how to go about it with our little learners.  I started with, “How can we make these seemingly hard kinds of reading activities meaningful for kids in kindergarten, first grade, and second grade?” It stemmed from what our expectations were as teachers and what I know my kids were capable of doing and what experiences would be most meaningful for them.

Q: Why is close reading important to teach in the early grades?

A: It is important to implement these practices in the early years of school so that students are exposed to texts that invite discussion, encourage deep thinking, and spark curiosity. We can’t wait until students are in fourth grade, fifth grade to teach them how to think about a text in ways that are applicable to the real world in authentic ways that means something to them. We can start as early as kindergarten, when kids are not yet conventionally reading, but they can do the thinking that goes along with reading. Start getting kids thinking bigger, thinking critically about texts before they move on into the later years of school.

Q: How can close reading transfer into other parts of a student’s learning?

A: Close reading can be used to invite wonder and curiosity in that inquiry learning that is so important for kids to be able to do. They can use close reading as a launching point into something else that they might want to explore on their own or that they’re interested in. In the book, there are a couple of different points where I talk about experiences that I’ve had doing close reading and then the kids’ thinking takes over. It’s built-in time where they get to choose what they want to learn about.

Q: Who would benefit most from this book?

A: This book is for K–2 classroom teachers, even third grade. It is for anyone who either works with early emergent readers, who are just dipping a toe into close reading, or anyone who has done a lot with close reading and are looking for some new ideas. I also think administrators who are looking to be—or already are—instructional leaders in literacy could benefit from reading it and bringing these ideas to their staff to think about close reading in a new light.

Q: How do your students respond to this instruction?

A: The kids love anytime they get to annotate, so we do it in a couple of different ways: When we do it as a whole group, they are so excited to use the highlighter, or the smart board, or whatever tool we’re using that day to look for things in the text that we’re examining. They love that part. They love it even more when they can do it on their own, during independent reading. I’ll give them a wiki stick or highlighter tape, and they make it their own. And then, they come up and say, “Look Mrs. Stewart! Look what I annotated today!” And to hear a kindergartner say the word annotate—and know what it means—it’s a powerful thing.  It’s really fun to see how they take something so abstract, and they run with it. I think that’s the most exciting part. My students also enjoy being word detectives and learning new vocabulary words.  They are especially proud of their word journals, where they keep track of the words we learn throughout the year.  There is so much good thinking and learning that can come from close reading experiences.

Q: Is there anything else you’d like to share about Little Readers, Big Thinkers?

A: Everything that’s in there are things that I’ve done and things that I’ve tried and things that I’ve worked with teachers on. I really tried to appeal to the busy life of a teacher. I think that teachers have one of the hardest jobs in the world. I wanted it to be an easy read that they could take a practice here and there and try in their classrooms. I just hope that my voice, as a teacher, and my experience can help someone else.

What Are Number Sense Routines?

Students with strong number sense understand numbers, relationships among numbers, and number systems. They make reasonable estimates, compute fluently, and use visual models based on their number sense to solve problems. Students who never develop strong number sense, however, will struggle with nearly all mathematical strands. But the daily use of quick five-, ten-, or fifteen-minute number sense routines will help!

With her resources and professional development, author and educator, Jessica Shumway shows us how to incorporate these number sense routines into each math class and watch as students become more engaged and develop a number sense that will stay with them throughout the grades. Here she is talking about number sense routines. To learn more, download a brochure.
