4. Online Activity:

Post it Editing notes: These post it notes would be effective resources for students to use as they write in the classroom or for homework. I think that this would be good guidelines to help work towards quality convention writing.

Grocery List Spelling: One good feature of this activity is that the majority of students will go grocery shopping with their guardians. I feel that this is a great resource for students/teachers because they can effectively make a regular activity and make it educational and fun.
