Spelling Smash Ball is a fun way to reinforce the basic words students need to be able to spell in upper elementary and middle school. It is perfect for lower elementary, or for upper elementary for remediation or ELL students. This game contains over 800 of the most used words in student writing. Blank cards at each level are included so that you may add cards based on your curriculum and needs. The game does not have to be played with all cards, either. You may pick and chose so many from each level. You can also use just the levels that are appropriate for your grade level.
The levels on the cards correlate to grade levels as well, so that it is easy to pull out a specific grade level for teaching or remediation. Each set of words should be mastered by the end of each respective grade. The levels are as follows:
Single- 1st grade words Double- 2nd grade words
Triple- 3rd grade words Home Run- 4th grade words
Grand Slam- 5th grade words
