I'm beyond thrilled to announce that the
is ready to be launched!
The first of the series is 101 Ways to Make Spelling Fun!
Why make spelling fun?
Research consistently shows that children learn more when they are actively engaged in the learning process and having fun! I have found that spelling has been the easiest subject to add fun to, and I am super excited to share activities that I have used for 20 years as a classroom teacher and while homeschooling my own children.
Who are these activities designed for?
These activities are created for preschoolers on up to fifth graders. Most of these activities can be adapted for learning the alphabet, numbers, and shapes for young children that do not have spelling words to practice. For children learning to read, you can also adapt these activities for practicing sight words.
Can I use them with my current curriculum?
Definitely! These activities can be used with any classroom or homeschool curriculum. I personally supplement my children's curriculum with one or two of these activities each week. You can even use these activities to practice words for homework. These ideas will easily complement any teaching method.
There are a variety of types of activities in this book. I have included lots of independent activities, activities you can do with a partner, and group activities. There are activities that address all types of learning styles, including lots of ideas that incorporate movement. In addition, these activities are cross-curricular and include reading, writing, math, music, and art.
But let's not forget that these activities are just plain fun, especially the games and edible activities that kids love!
You have THREE options on how to use this product.
Create a book by stapling it or adding it to a three ring binder. Keep it near your lesson plans or your child's study area to use as a reference.
Print on cardstock and cut out the cards. Add them to a recipe box or a similar storage container. Your child can independently choose the activities he is interested in OR you can use the box yourself to file the activities you have completed with your students. Just add the cards you have completed to the back section.
Print this document on cardstock and cut out the cards. Punch a hole in the upper left corner of the cards, and add a key ring to create a flip-book. This will keep the activities organized while flipping through the cards to choose activities to complete.
