School Is a Happy Place: They Daily Five: Where Are They Now? (Plus a Free Word Work Packet)

So when a first grader I tutor was struggling to memorize sight words a little while back, I made it my personal mission to design several entertaining sight word games that were both entertaining AND effective. Hands down, one of her favorite activities from the bunch was this high energy die game I call “Climb to the Top”.

A Fun Spelling Word Game Focusing on Vowel Sounds

This is a spelling game that makes practicing spelling words fun! This is also a game that helps students remember how to spell old spelling words. I use this game in my spelling center. This game is intended for a small group (4 students), but when I first introduce it, I play it in a whole group. $

How to Play Sparkle (Spelling Game)

Reading Street Spelling Game. Good ideas on how to use these in center S and whole group.

Instead of the official spelling homework, I am going to use this as a "may do" when a student has finished her work. (One of our options is always, "study spelling words" but this gives more direction...and it's fun!)
