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 mental math, multiplication, and addition.
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 Pattern Blocks:
- Students find the value of each letter by multiplying the number on each pattern block by the number of sides on the polygon. Add the values of the letters to figure out the value of the entire word.
- A Teacher Reference page is included so teachers can quickly check the value of each letter. This can be handy if the teacher is working on math skills in a small group.
- 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.
