Get kids working on general words that first graders should know how to spell. There is one game board, 160 spelling word cards, and 1 spelling star award template.
Just copy, laminate, and cut out everything for the game. Put the word cards in a baggie and the game is ready to go! Two students can play at a time. Give them tokens, pawns, anything as markers for their game. The first child picks up a a card and asks the opponent to spell the word. If the word is spelled correctly the speller follows the directions on the word card that will tell what to do with the game marker on the game board. Play continues until someone is declared the Spelling Star by getting to the finish line first.
There is a Spelling Star award if you choose to use it. Just have plenty of copies made ahead of time because kids love this spelling game!
