Part of my weekly spelling homework assignment is to have my students write a sentence for each spelling word. When I give my spelling tests, I say the word, use it in a sentence and repeat the word. Recently, I began selecting sentences from the students' homework. I either tell them or they have to guess who wrote the sentence. They love it! This encourages the students to be even more creative when doing their homework. This idea is simple to implement and it gives the children a feeling of ownership.
