    Fun Ways to Practice Spelling
    and Sight Words:



    Home Run:

    v Get in batter’s position.

    v Say the word letter by letter.

    v As you say each letter of the word, swing the baseball bat.

    v Say the entire word at the end and swing for the fences!

    (example: B-O-A-T  BOAT!)


    Snap and Clap:

    v Say the word letter by letter.

    v Snap your fingers for each vowel in the word, clap for each consonant in the word.         

    Frog Hop:

    v Get ready to hop like a frog.

    v Say the word letter by letter.

    v As you say each letter, hop up like a frog.

    v Say the entire word at the end and try to hop to the moon!



    v Say the word letter by letter.

    v Kick for each consonant, punch for each vowel.



    v Chant the word letter by letter.

    v Say, “Give me a B! Give me an O! Give me an A! Give me a T!

    What does that spell? BOAT!”



    v Write each word from the list on two index cards to make a pair.

    v Mix up the cards and put face down in rows. With a partner, take turns flipping over two cards to try to make a match. If no match is made, turn cards face down again. Next player goes. Person to make the most matches wins.


    Use sidewalk chalk to create games to help reinforce spelling and/or sight words.

    v Create a hopscotch board.  Jump to each letter as you spell the words.

    v Create a tic-tac-toe board with letters in each box. Spell words as you play.

    v Play hangman with spelling or sight words.
