This activity has been designed for students just learning to read and write. I have been using it with my 1st grade students, as it is fun and it can be used in a variety of ways to suit your class. Students are handed out packs of letter cards. I print them out in colour paper, because students work in groups and it is a good idea to assign a different colour to each group. The activity includes a list of simple words as well as one with digraphs for the teacher to read out and for students to spell using their cards. After a few times, time is incorporated in the activity- in other words, it is not just important that students spell their words correctly, but that they also do so in a certain time frame. Alternatively, students can be assigned a certain time frame and be expected to spell as meny words as possible.
