As part of my literacy groups I have a group that works on spelling activities, with their current spelling list. So what do they do each week? I wanted something fun, engaging, easy to organise, no hours of creating worksheets, simple to mark (if any) and independent.
After trawling the internet and thinking creatively I came up with these Spelling Activity Cards. The group gets the card and equipment, brings their spelling book and Voila! Ready made spelling activity.
There are 42 different activities, most able to be used with classes from Year 1 to 6. At the beginning of the year I use them with the whole class, as a modelling activity. It’s helpful to do this the week before they have to do it independently, especially with younger students.
Here are some images of some of the cards and students completing the different activities.
And here is a link to the actual spelling cards
What other ideas do people use to practice spelling?
