This download contains 6 activity sheets containing a range of active ways to practise and learn spelling.
Children will need a dice and paper to use alongside this resource. Children should roll the dice, and practise their spelling word/s.
This activity was designed for KS1 but would work for children in KS2 as well if they still struggle to learn their spelling words. I have these laminated in class and give them to children during morning work or spelling practice time.
If you have any questions, please ask :)
This download contains 14 finger phonic twister boards. Children can practise their sound/grapheme recognition (and fine motor skills!) as they place their fingers on the same sounds/graphemes.
These are perfect for starters and for early finishers :)
This download includes 4 fist bump posters. These should then be laminated and stuck to walls or doors with a focus word on the fist. Children should then fist bump and read the word whenever they walk past.
I have extended this for my year 2’s by having them spell the word when they go past or if you’re in a lower year group, you could add sounds to practise instead.
The download includes a list of all of the year 2 common exception words that can be cut up and stuck on when needed. You can of course, add your own words/sounds instead!
If you have any questions please ask. I hope you love it!
This download includes 26 tic tac toe 4 in a row game sheets. Children should aim to make 4 of the same spelling/sound. The download contains a mixture of phonics and KS1 spelling words. I have also attached a blank template so you can add your own words/ sounds in you need something different.
I like to have these for morning and lunch activities for children to access :)
If you have any questions, please ask!
One sheet of paper with the rhyme ‘stop and freeze when your teacher says me’. Underneath there is a space for a rectangular post it note for you to write your word of the day. The idea is that you change the class word daily to keep your call and response fresh - and to make sure children are really paying attention! I like to use new vocabulary so that children are expanding their vocab daily :)
This download contains 19 posters to support children with strategies used to decode new words.
I’ve introduced these one at a time once a strategy has been introduced. The posters are just for decoding and word reading, not fluency or comprehension. These are available separately. You do not need all of these posters, you may just use a few of them. I have kept the clipart to a minimum to keep the focus on the content!
If you have any questions, please do ask.
