I have blogged about using this spelling strategy LOOK, SAY, NAME, COVER, WRITE AND CHECK from the book Spelling K-8 Planning and Teaching by Diane Snowball and Faye Bolton.
I recently updated my sheets
To include picture clues for my kindergarten students.

Look ~ visual details
Say~ notice parts
Cover~paper over top
Name~ finger under each letter
Write~quickly (think about how the word looks)
I recently came across the book The Next Step in Guided Reading by Jan Richardson. There are so many great things about this book. It gives explicit information on teaching guided reading and also has tons of suggestions on word study and guided writing. This is a MUST HAVE BOOK!
