Each day of the week, I vary the activity that my students work on to learn their spelling words. It makes learning words more exciting than writing words 10 times each.
Spelling Words Activity 1 – Sort by # Sort words by the amount of letters in each word.
Spelling Activity 2 – Writing Response – Read and answer questions that contain spelling words.
Spelling Activity 3 – Stamp your Spelling Words (I purchased these small cube letter stamps at Michaels, for $1!)
Spelling Activity 4 – Typing! Type words into the following website: http://www.wordle.net
Spelling Activity 5 – Flash Cards –Make flash cards on construction paper. Later, have a spelling bee!
Spelling Activity 6 – Word Illustrations – Draw a picture to match each word.
Spelling Activity 7 – Sentences Write a sentence with each spelling word.
In addition to the above activities, I have created and published the ELEMENTARY ELEPHANT Spelling Curriculum, aligned with the Common Core State Standards and using the Pearson 4th grade spelling words as a guide. The following link will take you to my TpT shop, where you can view more details and download it. You can also purchase the entire full year (34 week/9 month) Activity and Word List bundle, or you can sample it with Month 1 or Month 2. You my also like to know that the lists are modified, making them great for the Resource classroom, great for a review and also great for summer school, home school, RTI and tutoring.
