It's the game we all know and love. Easy concept but lots of fun! This concept is not new but still is a great way to get kids motivated and interacting with their spelling words!
There are two main sets of activities for the tic tac toe board. You could...
1. Rotate boards each Monday to keep activities from getting old quickly.
2. You could give the boards to different students depending on needs (one is a little higher level than the other)
3. You could use one for the first half of the year and then use the second for the second half of the year
4. Whatever works for your classroom!
Each set also has two versions: One asks for a parent signature at the bottom to promote parent involvement. The other asks for a student signature.
There is also two versions of a spelling quad to give students for use. A quad simply asks students for synonyms, antonyms, a dictionary definition, and a sentence with the word in the middle. There is a full page version for one word or there is a full page version for 4 quads.
I have also included a fun page for use when students choose to create the persuasive ad.
There are 18 different activities in all including...
1. Create a persuasive ad trying to sell a ridiculous product. Use 10 spelling words
2. Pretend you are an author pitching your newest novel. Using 10 spelling words, describe the plot of your novel.
This is my 7th year teaching the 5th grade. I have been lucky enough to work in the most amazing campus. I teach reading in a departmentalized campus in the upper elementary grades and I am enjoying it! Reading is a passion of mine!
