A reminder of the spelling activity grid.
|1. Spot the Word
Look to see if you can spot smaller words inside the spelling word eg; friend, vegetable.
|2. Speed Write
Choose some words from the spelling list. How many times can you write the same word in one minute?
|3. Rainbow Words
Break a word down into syllables and write each part in a different colour eg; im / poss / i / ble
Write a mnemonic to remember the spelling: the first letter of each word in the sentence spells the word eg; because: big elephants can’t always use small exits.
|5. Backwards Words
Write out the spelling word forwards and then backwards eg; communicate / etacinummoc
|6. Silly Sentences
Write silly sentences with a spelling word in each. Underline the spelling word.
|7. Connect the Dots
Write the spelling words using dots, then connect the dots by tracing over them with a coloured pencil.
|8. Spelling Tennis
Play with somebody at home and evidence it in your homework book.
One person starts with the first letter of the word; the other person says the next letter. The last person to add a letter, wins!
