Spelling

Here are some great ideas for studying spelling words I found online:

1. Put the words in abc order.
2. Write a story using as many words as you can from your spelling list.
3. Write each spelling word 5 times.
4. Use scrabble tiles to spell the words.
5. Make a mini dictionary with word, picture, and meaning.
6. Make riddles with the spelling words as the answers.
7. Find spelling words in a dictionary and write their meaning.
8. Make spelling flash cards.
9. Divide words into syllables and code them.
10. Write a silly sentence using as many spelling words as you can.
11. Cut letters from magazines to spell the words.
12. Have a family member print the spelling words leaving out the vowels. Then fill in the vowels.
13. Take a practice test.
14. Make a word search.
15. Write spelling words by scrambling the letters, then unscramble them.
16. Write a sentence for each word.
17. Write each spelling word on two index cards and play a game of concentration.

We have actually done almost all of these through the years, but this was a good reminder for me of how many fun ways there are to study spelling!

Here is the link where I found these ideas.

    I just ran across a fantastic website for spelling. It's http://www.spellingcity.com. My kids (10 & 11) are actually enjoying spelling! I signed up as a teacher, and am able to enter my own spelling list. The kids can go out and search the list (without needing to register) and play games and even take a practice test! It's amazing!
