Active Spelling Games
These common core spelling games encourage teams to spell the most words within a predetermined amount of time. Divide the class into 2 equal teams and scatter the spots around the playing area with the letter side facing up. Designate a gathering area and writer for each team and a place a piece of paper and writing utensil in the area.
When the music starts, students skip around the playing area between the spots. When the music stops, each student moves to an Alpha-Spot. After all students find a spot, they pick up their spots and bring them to their team area. For the next 5 minutes, students use their letter to spell as many words as possible. After 5 minutes, students turn the paper with their words to the teacher. The teacher decides the winner of the round. Then scatter the spots and continue playing for a predetermined number of rounds.
The game promotes spelling and exercise, so students learn and have fun while staying active. This gets the entire class involved in a simple, easy-to-set up activity!
Strong, Safe Design
