SPELLING
CONNECT 4
  • Write down each spelling on a separate piece of paper.
     

  • Shuffle the pieces of paper and place them in a pile face down. 
     

  • Player 1 picks a spelling from the top of the spelling pile and reads it to player 2. 
     

  • Player 2 must spell that word correctly to be able to place a Connect 4 counter on the grid. 
     

  • Player 2 then picks a card to read to player 1, who tries to spell the word correctly. 
     

  • The winner is the first player to have 4 counters (in any direction).

SPELLING SPOTS 

Spot your words in books, magazines, when listening to conversations, on the radio, TV, on Youtube etc. Or if you’re really struggling to find them, in a dictionary. 

It can be played against a partner where you race to see who can spot their word or words first.

WORD JUMBLE

Use letter tiles to spell out your words. 

You can use tiles from scrabble, bananagrams, or similar games, or you can cut up and use the letter tile sheets from school.
