Spelling Connections Games
Providing students with spelling practice can be monotonous. While I firmly believe that the best way to improve students' spelling is to use a Writer's Workshop approach, it can be helpful to use practice activities with students from time to time. I recently stumbled across Spelling Connections, a collection of free games that allows students to practice spelling and editing in context. In my opinion, the best game is called "Spelling and Writing" and it forces students to edit spelling errors contained within authentic texts. I hope you find this helpful!
