Word games for kids
Seusstastic Classroom Inspirations
Using the game Hedbanz with sightwords- just write them on an index card. Here is how it goes....the boy in the grey sweatshirt is "it". The children starting with the cutie pie in the blue shirt spell the word on his headband & he has to guess his word. If he guesses he picks the next person to be "it" & then they spell their word. After everyone gets done then WITHOUT looking they flip their card over & start over until it's time for a new card.
Scrambled Eggs: A Fun Twist on Spelling
Scrambled Eggs: A fun twist on spelling. While working within a farm theme with some emerging young readers recently, I used one of my favorite delivery systems for spelling work: Scrambled Eggs. It’s essentially a word scramble, but I make it more hands-on by writing or typing out the words, then cutting them into small squares and placing them in a plastic egg.
