Roll & Spell

Written by Mommy Cameron | Homeschooling

I am still trying to find fun and creative ways for Thing 1 to practice his spelling words.  Here is another idea I came up with on the spur of the moment.

Roll & Spell

Notecards with the spelling words written on them
Education Cubes
Or you can use one or two of those printable dice and write the spelling words on them
we also used a Magna Doodle to change it up

Have the child roll/throw a dice.  I have boys so we throw everything.  Whatever word the dice lands on, they write that word down, in this case on the Magna Doodle.  This was simple enough and Thing 1 went through it until he had written all the words.

At one point, Thing 3 was “helping” Thing 1 by throwing the dice for him.  Both boys were having fun and Thing 1 was still learning his spelling words.

You could also turn this idea into a challenge and give them a certain amount of time and see how many words they can write.
