Make Spelling Fun!!! I know in my household,my boys can
find learning their spelling words a chore. It can be seen
as very repetitive and boring.
My eldest (11 year old) has poor spelling and we have been
working on it for years. We may be getting closer to him
understanding and believe me when we are there I will
share with you how we didit. My middle son (6 year old)
gets in there, uses look, cover, write, checkand gets the
words right straight away. All children are so different.
In order to make it fun, shake it up a bit, forget
the pen and paper and take them outside.
There are so many activities that can make spelling fun
and outside is a great place to do it. Being outside our
kids are getting fresh air, being active and are playing like
Kids can learn their spelling words by:
· writing their words in the sand
· drawing on the driveway with chalk
· making their spelling words out of sticks or leaves
· spelling the words as the kick a ball, jump rope, or
bounce a ball.
There are so many ways they can learn.
While outside is fun, spelling activities can be fun inside
as well. There are a wide range of materials you can
- use craft materials,
- coloured pens or pencils,
- play dough
and the list continues.
