Notice any unusual letter combinations. </li></ul><ul><li>Write – Write the word without looking at it. </li></ul><ul><li>Check – Check that you have spelled the word correctly. If you have got the correct spelling, go onto the next word. If not, write the correct spelling next to the word. </li></ul>

(We are going to devote some class time soon to working on the exhibition) For now we want the students to just start thinking about an organization that they might like to help. </li></ul><ul><li>Collecting money is a valuable thing to do, but there are so many other ways to help. We want this project to last longer than just the 6-8 weeks of the exhibition </li></ul><ul><li>Students will need to keep a record (A journal) of the ways that they help. Take plenty of photos.
