Here’s a fun spelling game for your entire class to play. This game requires players to think about vocabulary as well as spelling.
All you need are your students, a large white
board or chalk board, and markers or chalk!
Follow these simple instructions for second and third graders:
Here is an example of a string of acceptable words:
Some good starter words are: top, pat, cap, big, red, hug, and most other c-v-c words.
Variation for grades 4 – 6: Play with 4-letter words. These are much harder than the 3-letter words, so more starter words may be needed. Good starter words include: line, tale, feel, mall, rate, lose, boot, dull, and many others.
