This is another Orton Gillingham teaching method. Similar to Barton. I would recomend this to struggling learners who are mild to moderate Dyslexia.

rainbow writing (did something similar to this with the alphabet when one of my nanny charges were in kindergarten --- except they picked the color traced the letter 3 times, said the letter name and sound(s), repeated with at least 4 other colors), so I love this for learning spelling words. Could make writing them so much more fun and exciting.
This activity can be used in a center or as individual work at a students desk. It works with Gardners' theory of multiple intelligences well. A student is rolling a die-kinesthetic, working independly or in a center group-intrapersonal/interpersonal, and manipulating a word six times.
I like this idea as an in class way to help students learn their spelling words. This will not only help them to spell them but also learn the meaning of them. The only thing I dislike like about this is that it asks for an antonym and synonym when all words may not have a direct opposite or mean the same as another word.
