I have a Grand Idea to share with you. It's a fun and engaging way to get your students excited about their spelling words!
Spelling Addition is so simple. Students work in pairs. One student says a word. The other student writes the word. The word is checked and written again. Then the letters from the word are given a number value and added up.
You can add another element to the practice by letting the players move a piece around a game board using the total from the value from each word. (click on this image for the free download)
You use this activity in a literacy center, as a homework assignment or as part of your weekly spelling routine.
