Spelling Games Activities Year 5 and 6

(3)
3 four in-a-row games and 3 puzzles worksheets for fun revision of the KS2 Y5 / Y6 statutory word list of 100 words. They work well for Year 6 SATs tests preparation, or use as starter tasks, early finisher activities or as stations in spelling / SPaG lessons. Ideal as fun, meaningful fillers activities too. These use UK spelling, punctuation and grammar rules. SAVE as part of a SPaG Revision Activities BUNDLE, which also contains SPaG Editing / Proofreading Puzzles.   3 HIDDEN WORD / SPOT THE MISTAKES PUZZLES: Puzzles feature sentences containing multiple words from the Year 5 and Year 6 spelling list, most spelled correctly Students check carefully to spot errors and highlight corresponding letters in the grid at the bottom Rearrange highlighted letters to form another word from the spelling list To save printing, print puzzles on card and laminate. Students use whiteboard pens, allowing repeated use Puzzles are included with a pastel background, to reduce glare for dyslexic learners and others for whom this is helpful. If not colour printing, it becomes a greyscale background, which you might like, though there are also versions without a background Spotting errors may help students remember to check their own work and help them avoid errors themselves Individual, pairs or small group use For differentiation put lower ability children into pairs, perhaps with a higher ability student. You could allow a word list or dictionary for support   3 FOUR IN A ROW GAMES: Each board contains 36 sentences featuring a misspelled word from the Year 5 and Year 6 word list These words are printed in bold and underlined Pairs or individuals can play against each other, aiming to correct 4 adjacent spellings in a line - horizontally, vertically or diagonally Students roll dice to determine from which column they must pick a sentence Print and laminate for regular use Originally designed for A3 printing, and I recommend this, with students writing directly on the board with a thin whiteboard pen. However, it works fine in A4 (you may need to adjust printer settings). If A4, students could write their spelling on a mini whiteboard or paper and put their initials in the space if correct   Thank you for supporting my store.   YOU MIGHT LIKE… Creative Writing Prompt Cards Improving Sentences Activities BUNDLE

KS2 Spelling Boggle Game

Lovely collection of 60 PowerPoint presentations. Each PowerPoint consists of one slide, which has a word taken from the KS2 spelling list. These start with words from the Years 3 & 4 spelling lists and move onto the Years 5 & 6 spelling list. These focus on the 9 letter words within those lists. Children have the challenge of trying to find as many words as they can with the combinations of letters and the added challenge of trying to work out what the 9 letter word is. Answers in the 'notes' section on each slide. Perfect for spelling lessons, filler activities and early morning work.

Homophones Spelling Games Activities BUNDLE

2 Resources
10 KS2 Year 4, Year 5 or Year 6 spelling games to make learning about homophones and near homophones fun. This could be used as a home learning activity, with a child aiming to reach a target of correct answers in a given time. These ‘splat’ SPaG activities include the following words that are often muddled up and misspelled: there / their / they’re (64 sentences included) it’s / its (64 sentences included) where / were / we’re / wear (64 sentences) whether / weather (32 sentences) knew / new (32 sentences) your / you’re (64 sentences) here / hear (64 sentences) to / two / too (64 sentences) threw / through (32 sentences) no / know (32 sentences) CONTENTS: 2 PDF documents (37 pages in total) 2 PowerPoint (10 slides in total) This bundle is comprised of 2 homophone splat game packs that are also available separately: Homophones Games 1 Homophones Games 2 The games revolve around a total of 512 sentences which model a variety of structures so that while children are learning about the spelling of commonly confused words they are also learning about how to use a range of openers, connectives, sub-clauses etc to construct interesting sentences. Many sentences are silly to further engage children! It’s a challenge to make SPaG work active and engaging, rather than relying solely on worksheets and these homophones splat games are ideal for fun consolidation during the main part of SPaG lessons or can be used as purposeful early finisher and/or starter activities. If you print and laminate them all, children could self-select the homophones they need to practise. It is best played in small groups, where children each take a sentence card which features 8 sentences with a homophone word in it (homophone words are printed in bold). Children take it in turns to read a sentence from their card while the others compete to splat the correct homophone flashcard (homophone flashcards are included in black and white as well as fun colour ‘explosion’ style cards so you can choose which to print). The first student to hit the correct homophone word scores a point. Students could lose a point for hitting the wrong word to stop them being tempted to guess early. The PowerPoint includes a slide for each game and features the homophone words for splatting as a whole class version on a ‘splattable’ whiteboard, should you so wish. 3 people could compete together each round, perhaps representing 3 teams.

SPELLING GRID GAME

Excel worksheet that produces a 9 letter grid to play spelling/word making games on an interactive whiteboard. I use this as an assembly starter activity for junior assemblies but it could just as easily be used as a lesson starter or end of day game. Just click on the change button to produce a new grid to play with. Favourite games with my pupils are longest word, unique word, most 3/4/5 letter words etc. Rules are simple - you can use each letter only once and you must use the middle letter in your word. You can make your own rules of course! I use a minute sandtimer as I can’t work out how to make a countdown timer in Excel.

Those particular rules and generalizations include: plural -s plural -es "fszl" "-ck" "-tch" "dge" "age" Doubling Rule E Rule Change Y Rule Optional Use: There are "wild cards" - students can change rule (if they turned over a different rule, so they have a "second chance" at getting a matched pair with another opportunity to turn over another card. Optional: Lose a Turn cards TEACHERS: You can determine the amount of rules to allow students to use. Remember there are 90 cards with the ten spelling rules/generalizations, young students developing visual memory will do better with less cards.But, as students's skills increase, consider increasing the number of rules/generalizations to include.
