3.Spelling Staircases- Students use our markerboards to write their words one at a time as stairsteps for example:
5. Rainbow Words- Students first write each of their spelling words in pencil, then they trace over each word with 3 different colored crayons to practice spelling them. I have a worksheet I found years ago that I use, but you could easily make up your own as well.
6. Sign Language Spelling- At the beginning of the year I teach my students how to sign each letter of the alphabet as we review their sounds and learn their spellings. By Thanksgiving, most of my students can sign the entire alphabet. For spelling, I have my students sign a word to their partner, then the partner has to decide what word they're spelling.
And last but not least - Spelling City!
