Though it requires a little prep work, this is a fun way to practice the words.
Once you have a set of sandpaper letter stencils, your child can arrange each word, place a piece of paper over it, and make a rubbing with pencil or crayons.
Some kids learn better when all their senses are involved.
Doing things like spraying shaving cream on the table and letting your child trace their words in it or having them write them with a stick in the dirt can help cement the words in their memory. You can make two sets of flashcards with the spelling words—it’s a good idea to write each set in a different color—or you can make one set with the words and one with the definition.
This way to practice spelling words depends, of course, on whether your child has a cell phone and what the plan includes.
With unlimited texting, though, it’s easy enough for you to receive the text, correct the spelling if necessary, and send back an emoticon.These modified fly-swatters can be a lot of fun to use.Give your child a copy of their spelling words and you might be surprised to see how enthusiastic they are to start swatting the words in all the books, magazines, posters, and papers in the house.I had a little fun with my daughter and didn’t tell her.I shared this image with all of the HTML codes on it for her to choose colors and type them in.You can change the font for quite a few choices and you can even change the colors.When you want to change the colors you can click on the customized box and a color will come up.Remember, you can always use the definition as a clue!It may sound silly, but there’s a definite connection between music and literacy.So I wanted to see how we could utilize it for an After School literacy activity. My daughter used Wordle it to type her spelling words and have fun at the same time!Since she’s in first grade this year it’s our first year with spelling words.
