An important part of Spell to Write and Read is doing enrichments. Enrichments are activities designed to reinforce the words and phonograms in interesting ways. One of D-Man's favorites is his box of spelling words. Each week, he writes his words on 3x2.5" cards. Then we file them in a box according to each list. This has turned out to be a great activity. First, he gets to practice spelling the words when he writes them on the cards. Then, we can use the cards in a couple of ways. We use them as flashcards to practice reading the words. This helps D-Man improve his reading fluency. We also arrange them into sentences. This is a sneaky way to introduce grammar gently. When we form sentences, we learn about nouns, verbs, pronouns, and adjectives. Of course, once we form a sentence, he reads it and practices fluency. So much work in a simple activity. I'm sure I'll come up with more ways to use these cards as we go on with the program.
