More Than Words: Tally It Tuesday

Today is day two of introducing the one or two popcorn words to my class.  If you didn't see yesterday's post, you can view it here.

I start by going through the SMART file again.  We also review the word cheer of the week.  
I then introduce the Tally It sheet.

Click on the images to get them from my TPT store.

Beginning of the year version (trace the words in the sentence at the bottom).

Middle of the year version (fill in the blanks with the words).

End of the year version (write a sentence using both words on the line).

This gives students a chance to write the word, trace the word, color the word and find the word.  I once again insist that they verbally spell the words as they write them in all the different places.  It is also a really good way to practice making tally marks!

Here is a list of the words it covers (two words during a regular week and one during a short week):
