Write each letter of the week's spelling words. Get your scissors and cut each letter into its own card. Now the fun begins. Pull out the letters for one word and mix them up. Kids can then move the letters around until the spelling is correct. If you have a bell, let them ring it when they think the answer is correct. Are they too good at the game? Set a timer for each word to increase the difficulty.
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.
Why do young students especially benefit from fun worksheets? Because first grade spelling students and second grade spelling students have so much to learn! As we all know, once young minds get distracted, it can be very difficult to get them back on track! When students see the same familiar formats over and over, as in many workbooks, it is all too easy for them to yawn, scribble a bit and move on to something more interesting.
