Thing 1 has been struggling with spelling, so I have been on a mission to find some activities to help him learn his spelling words. While looking for something else in our not so organized homeschool/craft closet I saw our collection of stamps, specifically our alphabet stamps. Thus, stamp spelling was born.
I have written all of Thing 1’s spelling words written on flashcards to use different ways throughout the week. He took one card at a time and stamped that word onto a sheet of paper.
He loved it. It also allowed him to study the words and make his own connections to the words, which will help him learn to spell the words. It was neat to watch him make connections to the different words in the spelling list. I also observed him concentrating, double checking the spelling of the word so that he would not make any mistakes.
What activities have you done to teach spelling?
