There are a lot of creative ways to encourage spelling practice.
A few ways we keep spelling fresh and fun:
Write a Sentence for each Word, they have for the week. This is great for dictation.
Every Wednesday, we FaceTime Grandpa (my dad) and they write a short story that includes all 10 of their spelling words. It’s usually a funny and nonsensical story – but a effective nonetheless and great for the imagination!
Along with the ‘fun stuff’ we also do a pre test and a real test. Sometimes I have a pencil a paper, but mostly we narrate our spelling words.
