BATTLESHIP SPELLING PRACTICE~ A 2-player game where each student inserts the word list in to spaces going across. Players take turns guessing coordinates. If they miss, they mark it on their board. If they hit a letter, they keep guessing until they miss. If they sink a word, the player marks it off of his list. The goal of the game is to sink all of your opponent's words. Fun and great practice!
Scrabble Recording Sheet With Tiles- Daily 5 Word Work; I'll use this as a warm-up. Just use Spanish characters & have students use Spanish words! I could also put actual tiles on the elmo projector or on each table. It would move a lot faster than a full game, and would encourage 100% participation.
$100 WORD CHALLENGE. Challenge the students to see if they can come up with a word that has a value of exactly $100. Other ideas.. Add up their spelling words to see which is the most/least expensive. Who can find the most expensive word in the dictionary? Using an atlas, find the most/least expensive country.
