Board Game Spelling

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff

There are so many ways to make spelling more fun! Divide your students into 5 groups. Give each group a store-bought board game, such as checkers or bingo. (Each group needs a different board game.) Next, have the students design a new set of rules for that game, where they incorporate their spelling words into it. For example, a group may decide in the game of checkers that a player must first spell the word given to him/her, and if it is spelled correctly, they can then move their game piece. You'll be amazed at how creative your students will be! After the new set of directions are written for each game, groups can get up in front of the class to explain the new rules. Groups can rotate the games so that each student can play the new version, or games can be placed in a center to be used during free time.
