Great Designer and New Word Work

Hey Guys!
Two nights ago, I stumbled upon this amazing designer/creator, Jaimee, through Jaimee creates SUPER cute doodles, clip art, digital scrapbooking supplies, and more!  AND, through today, she's running this fantastic special-- a "Mini-Access Pack".  For $20 you get to choose 15 of her products (most of which can be used for Commercial Use!).  It's an incredible deal, since I'm sure we all know that purchasing "cutesies" out of our own pockets can add up quickly! (To purchase this deal, you must visit Jaimee does have her own website,, too, where she has a blog and lots of freebies!) 

I took part in this deal, and actually used some of my new goodies to help put together my new "Wonderful Word Work Pack".  I figured it was time I took a few of my scattered ideas from my classroom and put them all together nicely.  So, I used some charming new products from Jaimee, and I made adorable cards for my chants and cheers (they used to be on laminated, plain notecards!), student activity cards (used to be in a plain binder), and I jazzed up a few worksheets, too!  Take a look:

I can't wait to get them copied (and/or laminated) and in use on Monday! 

I also can't wait to share the love!  So, here's my FREEBIE for the first 5 followers who leave a comment:  Share one awesome Word Work/Spelling activity or trick you use in your own classroom.  I know we'd all love to hear!!!  In return, I will send you one page from my new "Wonderful Word Work Pack"!  On your comment, be sure to let me know if you would like a page of chants/cheers, a page of student activity cards, or one worksheet!  (and don't forget to leave your email, too, so I know where to send it! :) )

Can't wait to hear about your spelling fun!!!


  1. My kiddos love an activity called "Bounce and Spell". We have a class set of balls about the size of a tennis ball. As we spell our ww words, we bounce and spell for each letter in the word. My kiddos love it. I have the recording sheet *freebie* on my blog.

    Your activities look great! I would love a page of the activity cards.

    1. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing...I can't wait to try it!

      Your activity cards are on their way! Enjoy! :)

  2. Something my kids love to do is act out their spelling words. One friend will act out the word and the other friend has to spell it. It can get pretty funny, especially with words like "their" it gets really trick! I am also a second year, second grade teacher and your newest follower! :)

    1. Welcome welcome! I'm glad you stopped by! The thought to act out spelling words never ever crossed my mind, but now that you've brought it up, I think it's BRILLIANT! My kiddos would LOVE that! Thanks for sharing.

      Let me know if you want a sample page from my WW pack above (and where to send it)....I'd be more than happy to share! :)
