Spell Down is a spelling game your entire class can play as it allows every child to participate, and each child has a fair chance of winning. The game requires little preparation by the teacher (you need only a spelling list) and is exciting and stimulating for the students. Game rules as well as six game adaptations are part of the original handout. A sample of how the game is played is also included.

An ideal time to play Spell Down is after recess or P.E. as the game tends to calm the students down. In addition, it is a quiet game because nothing is repeated, not the spelling word or any letter that is said by a child or the teacher. Instead of utilizing the game just during language arts, bring it into play in other subject areas where spelling is vital such as geography, history, science, etc.
