Your students will love this interactive PowerPoint spelling activity created for first grade using the Reading Street 2011 resource.
First print a mat for each student. The mat comes in two pages. I laminated my pages side-by-side so that I can easily fold them for storage. Make your mallets by cutting a pool noodle into sections and attaching a pencil for a handle. One pool noodle should make about 14 mallets.
Next locate the Unit and Week you wish to use. I have provided the ten words for each unit. When you are ready to begin the activity, go to "Slide Show" and select "play from start." The animations will play automatically. The PowerPoint will run almost 5 minutes.
The mallet will slowly move until it reaches the mole. The mole will then slowly sink off the page. Then the next page will then transition in.
The timer is set to allow for students to be successful. I challenge my students that finish early to whack out the word again and again.
