Ways to Use Helpful Word Builder Spelling Blocks
- Blocks are perfect for identifying consonants and vowels. Vowel blocks are green while consonant blocks are blue. Both green and blue blocks are included for the letter "y".
- Use blocks for spelling quiz/pretest to identify students needing intervention.
- Blocks may be used in conjunction with picture cards as prompts for assigned spelling words.
- Alphabetical order. Consider having students “build” each spelling word on a different slide. Then working in "slide sorter" or "grid" mode, drag & drop each word into alphabetical order.
- Blocks may be used for spelling assessments for students with fine motor impairments.
Resource includes 25 word builder slides which may be used over & over.
