Strategy - I like this one a lot
is a sure fire way to have all the kids in your class
spelling 'a lot' correctly by the end of the term. :
Cut out these cartoons.
2. Blu-tac them up high on the front wall of the classroom
with 'a' on one side of the room and 'lot' on the other.
3. Place the signpost in the middle and then choose where
you want the car.
4. Introduce the strategy to the kids by 'making a big
deal' about how far it is between 'a' and 'lot'. I then
walk between the parts of the poster a few times and go,
'Gee it is a BIG gap between 'a' and 'lot'.
5. Have a couple of 'victims' / I mean 'volunteers' come
out to do the same.
kids do enjoy this if you make light of it.... SO HAM
