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.
Word Chants with a twist….or an Aaarrrgh! Each card gives a unique way in which the chant should be done. Such as… Sing each word like an opera singer. Read each word like a robot with a computerized voice. Read each word as you pose like a statue.

Spelling word practice. If we used a board like this, it would save us from having to photocopy those packets every week. We'd be able to do just a front & back page for vocab list and spelling list instead.(And plus, these activities are way more fun than the current ones we assign.)
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.
