How much is your word worth? Spell and Solve is a fun and challenging word work activity that can be used with ANY list of spelling or vocabulary words. Word work and math are integrated as students solve problems to figure out how much a word is worth. Each letter has a value that students have to figure out, then add the values of each letter in the word to determine the total value. This set focuses on telling time and adding decimals.
Spell and Solve is perfect for spelling, word work, and math stations and early finishers! Also included are recording sheets for 10, 15, and 25 word lists. These sheets have space for students to write the words, a number sentence for each word, the value, and answer questions.

Spell and Solve with Clocks:
Students find the value of each letter by reading the time on the clock and writing the time in decimal form. For example, if a clock reads 5:25, write it as 5.25. (All times are to the nearest 5 minutes.) Add the decimal values of the letters to figure out the value of the entire word.
I recommend printing one or more pages of the Spell and Solve page in color and laminating for durability. The use of actual manipulatives are not required, but may be used when appropriate and necessary.
*Please Note: Scratch paper may be necessary to solve number sentences on. Of course, answers will vary. Each student recording page is labeled with the manipulative and skills for teacher reference.
