Spelling words…I have a love/hate relationship with them! They’re so important, but let’s be real – they can get monotonous…NOT anymore! This editable pack of spelling word activities is fun, engaging, and EASY to use.
Did I mention these spelling activities work for ANY word list? Whether it’s weekly spelling words, vocabulary words, or phonics skill words, all you need to do is type in your list. ONCE! Then ta-da! The activities on every page will generate based on the words you put in.
See all the words in the table? I typed those in! Now they’ll appear on all of the pages!
First, you get a word list! These come two to a page, so you only need half the copies! Don’t need it? That’s okay, too. Just don’t print it.
See that word bank? Thank you autofill!
I think practicing vowels and consonants is so important!
Writing silly sentences is always a favorite!
Practice typing skills without a keyboard! The kids LOVE this one.
This one utilizes a paperclip and a pencil OR a transparent spinner.
…because I get angry when words aren’t in ABC order. ?
These beginning sound codes have been such a hit in the seasonal spelling activities that I knew I had to include them in this set, too.
Tallying the number of sounds…also known as phonemic awareness.
What student doesn’t love drawing pictures for homework?
Rhyming words…they can match up the spelling words that rhyme or generate their own!
Surprise stacks are also known as word pyramids. These are great for memorizing spelling!
Here students will write their words backwards…and forwards!
Write every word in an AB pattern!
Grumpy graphs combine spelling and math!
Rainbow write is one of my personal favorites!
Remember not to input the words based on length…leave that to the kids!
This one is more about just using the word in a sentence…students need to use the word in an ASKING sentence.
Those silly sentences can’t be used in this shocking story!
Students need to find their spelling words…after they hide them!
Here’s another combination of spelling and math…plus, students practice vowels VS consonants again!
The best part of this page is that students have to decide how to sort their words. How’s that for higher order thinking?!
It might be hard to see in the picture…but all of the spelling words are in a traceable font!
These phonics boxes really make the kids think!
Another spinner activity!
So, what do you think? It’s fast for you and fun for them! If you’re interested in grabbing this resource pack, you can find it in my TpT store, or by clicking here.
