Day 29: Spelling Game

Wooden Scrabble® Tiles
Have you difficulty trying to get your students to spell or getting them to think about spelling at all? Then don't worry, here is a quick game that I used today to get my elementary learners to review particular vocabulary.

Grab some Scrabble tiles for a group of two to four learners, place students in islands and put their vocabulary notebooks and coursebooks away. Get students to choose a team name and write it on the board. Make sure you have more than one team, at least three teams. Tell students that you will call out a word, students then have to create the word using the Scrabble tiles. The first group to finish and spell the word correctly get a point. It is a fun activity and a wonderful chance to review vocabulary and spelling at the same time!

So what are you waiting for, dust off that Scrabble game and take the tiles to your class for next time!
