    Note:  Advanced lists can be found on Spelling City

     Here are several ideas for studying spelling words:

    Spell words with alphabet macaroni (can be glued to paper) or alphabets cereal (yummy to eat!).

    Spell words with magnetic letters on cookie sheets.

    Use alphabet stamps and let them stamp out their words on paper.

    Squirt a bit of shaving cream on a table and allow them to write their words.

    Cut letters from magazines or newspaper to spell the words.

    Write words as "stairsteps"
    • s
    • sp
    • spe
    • spel
    • spell
    • spelli
    • spellin
    • spelling
    • It is fun to do on graph paper.

    Use Wikki Sticks to bend the sticks into the desired letters to form each spelling word. After forming the Wicki Sticks, do a crayon rubbing of each word ona piece of paper.

    Make a wordsearch or crossword puzzle at Puzzlemaker.com with the spelling words

    Rainbow Words: Students write each spelling word with their pencil. They then go back and trace each word with a crayon. They do this two more times with two different crayons.

    Use empty film containers. Put lima beans with each spelling word letter on individual beans in the container. It is a "hands on" word scramble.

    Write spelling words in white crayon -or any light colored crayon, then paint over them with watercolor paint. The white crayon acts as a resist and the words "magically" appear.

    Guess the word: One partner "writes" a spelling word with his/her finger on his/her partner' back.
