This is a spelling game that makes practicing spelling words fun! This is also a game that helps students remember how to spell old spelling words. I use this game in my spelling center. This game is intended for a small group (4 students), but when I first introduce it, I play it in a whole group.
The downloadable file includes:
• The directions page on how to play the game. I laminated mine and glued it to an old coffee can.
• A dynamite page, which has, sticks of dynamite graphics to print out.
• In addition, I included the 290 spelling words for my reading series, which is Ohio Journey's for first-grade.
o (If your district uses this series then simply print out the spelling words onto Avery 8167 labels and stick the words to the dynamite.)
o (If your district uses a different series then simply type your spelling words on Avery 8167 labels, print, and stick to the sticks of dynamite. Also, type BOOM! on 6 labels to stick to the dynamite and BAM! on 6 labels to stick to the dynamite.
o Another option is that you can write your series spelling words on the dynamite sticks using a permanent marker. Don’t forget to write BOOM! on 6 sticks of dynamite and BAM! on 6 sticks of dynamite.
