A Great "Word Study" Site!!

Click on the link below for  a GREAT site to explore words with your students. It makes a great tool for whole group Word Study lessons on your smart board or independent research work on the computer. My "Firsties" love to practice their weekly words this way and after we have completed our lesson, we can print out the Fridge and paste the words in our Word Study Journals. AWESOME!!!
