Vocabulary Spelling Game
This is a fun way to practice spelling and vocabulary.
What you need for two players:
A set of small double-sided letter cards for each player
(See how to make them below),
10 vocabulary word definition cards
10 skittles or other candies for each player
Divide the definition cards face down in two piles of 5 cards each and place them in front of each player. Each player should also have one set of letter cards in a pile or on a plate next to the definition cards. At the word "Go" the players turn over the top card, silently read the definition, and determine which word it is. Then, they find the letters that will spell that word and put them next to the definition card. When they finish spelling that word they turn over the next card. When they have spelled all the words, they should double check their spelling. Then they get a skittle candy for each one they spelled correctly. If they misspell a word, you can give them a second chance to spell it correctly to get the skittle. Players switch cards and do it again.
