Spelling Workout (Ages 4 - 7) - an active spelling resource

Spelling Workout (Ages 4 - 7) - an active spelling resource

Recently I was working on a Closing The Gap project with some focus children in Upper Primary. The aim was to improve spelling ability with given rules. As part of the project I used physical activities to engage the pupils in learning their words. The results were largely positive. After the project was complete I spoke with the children and evaluated the process. They all agreed that doing physical activities to help with their spelling was really fun and engaging. I decided to build on this feedback as I wanted to my whole class to have the opportunity to get physical with their spelling, and so Spelling Workout - Workout Spelling was created. A big thank you to my amazing teaching colleagues who demonstrated the physical activities for the videos. What is Spelling Workout - Workout Spelling? Spelling Workout - Workout Spelling designates a different physical exercise/activity for each letter in the alphabet. Pupils can work on their spelling words whilst working up a sweat. There are videos to accompany each letter that demonstrate the exercise/activity required. There are two sets, one aimed at early years (ages 4 - 7) and one for upper primary (ages 8 - 11). There is also a poster included that can be printed for the class or used as a reference sheet / handout. Why Spelling Workout - Workout Spelling? To engage pupils, encourage exercise and to have some fun with spelling. This is quite literally spelling exercise! You can use the alphabet or videos in any way you choose. Make it work for you. Below is just some ideas for class use, if you have any other suggestions please let me know. I’m always looking for ideas! Workouts for weekly spelling words Workouts for spelling out names Brain Breaks Spelling workstations / corners Shout Outs (where a teacher or a pupil lead and shout out letters for classmates to follow in a routine, at the end of the workout fellow pupils can guess the word)
