Team Spell

Who said spelling practice had to be boring?? This high paced, teamwork required, hands-on game brings so much excitement to our room.

Here's what you do. Give each group a set of alphabet cards. Have them lay the cards face up all around the group. Use a "wild" card to be a duplicate letter when needed. Like an extra p in apple. Next, call out a word from your word wall or weekly spelling list and watch the teamwork kick in. "I have a d... I have the g... Quick, here's the o!" "We got it we got it!" My kids LOVE IT!!! Finally have them reset the cards for the next word, but don't talk during a reset because you can lose your cards!
