Laminate each sheet and then cut out each flower. You can attach green pipe cleaners to the bottom or you can use just the flowers, the choice is ultimately up to you.
1.Scatter the flowers around your classroom, all scrambled up.
2. Split your class up into teams. (3-4 people on one team)
3. Give each team a sheet of paper and a pencil
4. Assign team jobs
- The writer
-The hand raiser
-The flower picker(s)
Game: Read the spelling word/ definition. Have them (as a team) discuss the spelling of the word. The writer is responsible for writing the words down. When the team is in agreement on the spelling, the hand raiser puts his/her hand up to signal to the teacher that they are ready to pick their flowers.
When the teacher calls on the team with their hand up, they may enter the flower field and look for the letters they need to spell the word (more than one team may be in the flower field at once- this will make it more fun for the kids.). While they pick the letter flowers, their other teammates are cheering them on from the sidelines (NOT TELLING THEM WHERE THE LETTERS ARE IF THEY SEE THEM!! The pickers must find the letters on their own).
Once they have their letters and they are lined up in the correct order, they raise their hands or press a buzzer. The other teams can continue picking their flowers until the teacher confirms that the team has the correct spelled word.
(Blank flowers may be used if there are not enough letters to spell the words, but only when all the letters they need are gone. If both teams have used blank flowers as letters, the team with the fewest blank flowers gets the point.)
