Spin & Spell: Spelling Buddies game is aligned with the 1st grade National Geographic REACH FOR READING curriculum.
2 spinners (1 color & 1 black & white) and two versions of spelling bookmarks. Set 1 includes the 10 skill words listed in the Reach for Reading Teacher’s Edition. Set 2 includes 4 skill words & 6 HFW (high frequency words) as listed in the Teacher’s Edition
Each set includes 32 colorful spelling bookmarks and 32 black & white spelling bookmarks for a total of 128 spelling bookmarks.
To play, the first player spins and calls out the number that the paper clip lands on. The second player looks at the spelling list & calls out the spelling word listed next to the number that corresponds with the number on the spinner. If the first player can spell the word, he or she gets a point. If the player is unable to correctly spell the word, the player with the list spells the word aloud and play passes to the next player; with the spinner and spelling bookmark being passed back and forth between them. Play continues until the allotted time is up.
