For example.........

Torchlight Words - set up an Alphabet chart, turn out the lights and use a torch to shine on each letter (one letter at a time) to spell words.

Hidden Spelling Words - on a white piece of paper let your child write out the spelling words using a white crayon. Once all words have been written use watercolors and paint to make hidden words appear.

Partner Spell - take turns adding a letter to spell each word. For example, for the word FUN - child starts by saying the letter F, parents adds letter U and child then completes word by adding the letter N. This requires focus and listening and is a great exercise for primary aged learners.

Bounce a Ball - bounce a ball as you spell words - 1 bounce per letter.
