New Zealand Essential Spelling Words - 'Unscramble it' mats

(0)
A fun, interactive activity for your students to practise their spelling words. Print and laminate the mats. Students use alphabet letters such as magnetic letters, scrabble tiles, letters written on milk bottle lids or pieces of card. They gather the letters they need and manipulate them until they see the word. Words used: NZ Essential Spelling Words lists 1-8 (list 8 = commonly misspelt words). 2 Different Formats: ♦ With a prompt – a dot under the starting letter ♦ Without a prompt 69 ‘Unscramble it’ mats in total Just print the mats that suit the level of your students: ♦ List 1 – 2 mats ♦ List 2 – 4 mats ♦ List 3 – 6 mats ♦ List 4 – 10 mats ♦ List 5 – 10 mats ♦ List 6 - 14 mats ♦ List 7 – 12 mats ♦ List 8 – 11 mats * This is the type of activity that your ‘hands-on learners’ will appreciate. * Great for a learning station, early finisher activity, etc. * This activity will reinforce both spelling and reading. The font used is ‘NZ Basic Script’. The letter shapes are the same as those recommended in the NZ Ministry of Education Handbook – ‘Teaching Handwriting’. 5 words on each A4 page. The level of each mat is written in the bottom right corner. Answer sheets are not provided. If you can’t work out what the word is (particularly some of the longer words in list 7 and 8) just look at the starting letter and refer to a copy of the essential spelling list. Please note that when making some of the longer words, the letter tiles will not fit in the allocated space on the page. These longer words will spread out onto the table/floor. Also, there are two words in List one that are only 1 letter long (a and I) so these will not require unscrambling. The words are displayed in a different order to my other resource – Essential Spelling Words ‘Make it’ mats. © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources
