Spelling Activities – A Learning Center Using The Three-Story Intellect

spelling activitiesThis spelling learning center has been planned around The Three-Story Intellect and encourages students to use higher order thinking.  The center acknowledges the different ways students learn and provides a variety of activities to motivate your students. This item is suitable for Grades 4 – 8, 29 pages.

The three-story intellect recognizes three different levels of thinking including:

  • Gathering information;
  • Processing information; and
  • Applying information.

The center is best implemented with a fortnightly spelling program and is appropriate to use with any spelling list. Each of the spelling activities in the center has been classified into one of the levels.  Students are required to complete a different levelled activity each day for a fortnight.

Students are provided with a ‘spelling contract’.   These inform the students of the activity they are required to complete for each day.  The contract also lists 3 personal challenge tasks. These are more detailed tasks that students need to complete in the fortnight (after they have completed the daily activities).
