6 different spelling tic-tac-toe forms for students to use as weekly homework. Each week has a space for students to write 10 spelling words and then a choice of 9 different spelling activities! Students are expected to choose 3 to complete each week.
For a year's worth of homework, cycle the same forms by changing the week's number at the top of the page.
The activities are easy for students to complete, but give them (and their parents!) choice in what activities work best for their family.
