With so much text-based interaction on social media and via email, spelling ability is on display everywhere.
Focusing on the most commonly misspelled words, this resource aims to challenge students to spell tricky words correctly. These are everyday words that they will use constantly, so it’s a great way to reinforce correct spelling.
This activity is designed for students in Years 4-6.
You can use this in a few different ways. You might like to assign students a number of words to focus on, depending on their strengths. Some students might work on only 3 words, whilst others may choose to tackle the entire 15 words in each challenge. Students can record accuracy and then measure their progress over time. You can complete the activity each day for a week and then repeat the same list one week per term to be able to measure progress over time.
