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
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.
