A time saving hint: If you are using lists with your students make up a week by week table of all levels. Project up onto screen on day one of writing lists. (No more writing them up on the Whiteboard)
Publish them to your Wiki or website so that students can write them down as
during a 'blended Literacy time'
If you haven't got a Wiki or a Website set up a
Class Delicious account
and save suitable spelling sites for students to use during literacy time or for homework

ICT and everyday activities
For years we have got children to do the same activities over and over again. Some children like doing them, some do not. Some of these activities do not suit everyone but are typical 'drill and kill'. Revitalise those activities and they may attract a different audience.
An example of this is in the subject of Spelling.
Write this word '3' times.
or Match the Capital and lower case letters
endings of words
How many times have you had children finding dictionary meanings for words?
And then unjumbling words or writing in the missing letters.
Think about some of the activities you do on a regular basis. Which of those could you recreate using Word, PowerPoint, Pages, Keynote, Kidspiration, Inspiration or any other software you may be using in the classroom. These are also great interactive whiteboard activities. They can be shown on the projector for children to do in their books and then followed up later as fast finisher activities or learning centre activities.
