{Spelling Favorites}

These spelling activities are favorites in my classroom!
The students especially enjoy the Horse Race game!!

Happy Spelling!

For Spelling Bingo, because we have 12 words on our spelling lists, the students write each word in two different boxes.  I have the words on sticks in a can (each word on 2 sticks).  We draw the sticks out and cover the words with Unifix cubes.  Students get bingo by covering 5 in a row (up and down, side to side, or on a diagonal).  We play three rounds when we play.
Round 1: I draw the sticks from the can, spell the word out loud, and the students respond by saying the word out loud as they cover that word with a cube.
Round 2: I draw the sticks from the can, say the word, and the students respond by spelling the word out loud as they cover it with a cube.
Round 3: SPEED ROUND! I draw the sticks out of the can fairly quickly, alternating spelling/saying the chosen word.  This can get pretty crazy, but they LOVE it!

  1. I love these spelling games! We also have 12 words in our spelling units (we use Pathways to Spelling) so these will be perfect! Thank you!
