Write the alphabet all over the ball, writing each letter randomly and not all in order. Now stand across from your kids and bounce the ball to them. As you bounce the ball, call out one of the spelling words. Not only do they catch the ball, they then search for the letter on the alphabet ball and call it out while showing you the letter. If they get the letter right, they bounce the ball back to you and you say the next letter in the word after you find the letter on the ball, taking turns until the word is complete.
You can buy blank puzzles that let you create anything you want on the pieces. They're also affordable so your kids can create new puzzles with every new spelling list. With one blank puzzle, kids can decorate their puzzles any way they want and then write their spelling words on the pieces. Once the puzzle's complete, kids can cut around each word to make their own unique puzzle or simply use the pre cut pieces to begin studying their spelling words right away.
Children don't only need to recognize and sound out letters, but they also need to learn to print the letters of the alphabet. You can do this on your own by just printing a sample of a letter and have your child copy it. However, some children need a little extra help in forming the letters and really benefit from tracing over letters several times before trying to do it without a template. Luckily, there are lots of resources online where you can print these letter tracing templates. If your child starts to get frustrated, then take a break. You want them to have fun learning and be supportive of the whole journey.
