Spelling - Go - Round


Spelling-Go-Round is the name given to an activity we do to practice spelling most Mondays. The name and idea was started by a former teacher at S-K many years ago, and I have used and tweaked it ever since. It is an example of multi-sensory instruction that reinforces language teaching in a really powerful way. Using large arm movements, pleasant sensory experiences, visual, physical, and auditory repetition – all help “lock in” tricky sight words. Plus, it is a lot of fun!

Here are a few pictures from this afternoon:

Some of the choices, ready to go
Write all of your words in shaving cream

Write each word on the chalkboard three times, with three different colors

Write each word in the air with your finger

Look up each word in the dictionary

Write each word on a white board

Make a word search using all of your words

Quiz your friends
