Spelling Station lets you use your own lists to create your own customized spelling game. It will help your class learn and practice their spelling words in a fun new way! You must have ActivInspire software for the Promethean board installed on your computer.
This resource includes one flipchart with 7 template slides. Create your game by choosing one of the templates (for two, three, four, five, six, seven or eight letter words) for each of your spelling words. Each template slide has a set of 27 letter blocks (26 letters and 1 apostrophe for contractions) that use the drag-a-copy feature. (See Example 1 above) Duplicate the slide as many times as you need for your list and delete the templates you don’t use. An answer box on the freight car can be used to give immediate feedback. Type the correct word spelling and you’re ready to go!
To play the game, call off a spelling word and have a student choose the block letters to spell the word and place it in the station. The drag-a-copy feature lets the kids choose a letter as often as it is needed. (See Example 2) When the student is done, he/she clicks on the ANSWER button, revealing the correct answer you have typed underneath. (See Example 3) An optional reward train sound can be heard by clicking on the engine. (Each template has a different whistle sound!)
