Fun games to help you learn your spellings

  • Staircase: Write the words as if they are stairs, adding one letter at a time.






  • Spelling Puzzle: Make a home-made puzzle by writing each word in large letters on card and then having the child cut each card in to pieces.The fun is in putting the puzzle back together
  • Flip and Rainbow Write: Write the spellings onto cards.  Flip a word card and have your child write each flipped word  in rainbow colours.  Make the first word red, second orange, third yellow, etc. OR write each letter in a colour of the rainbow.
  • Type it Out: Open up a Word document and have your child type the spelling words on the screen as you call them out. Let them enlarge the font, make it a cool colour, and he’ll have a ball.
  • Spell on Tape: Have your child spell the words into the voice recorder on your phone or computer.
  • Video Record: Use a video camera or camera phone to take a video of your child spelling the words. Have him put on a funny hat, dress-up, or use a silly prop to add to the fun.
