    I taught second last year and here are some ways we practiced our spelling.
    Rainbow Spelling-Writing the words over and over in rainbow colors
    Basketball Spelling-Kids(as a whole group) stand up say the word then pretend to bounce the basketball while saying the letters of the word when the word is finished they jump to pretend put the ball in the basket and say the word (my kids loved this)
    Hickety Pickety- A spelling rhyme
    Hickety Pickety Bumble Bee can you say this word with me---------
    First we say it-------- (letter by letter)
    Then we clap it-------- (letter by letter)
    Then we stomp it------- (letter by letter)
    Hickety Pickety Bumble Bee can you say this word with me---------
    Another activity I did after my words were put on the word wall was Guess the Word. I'd say I'm thinking of a word it begins with--. Then give them another clue or a sentence that it would fit in. The kids would write these down and then we'd check them together.
    I hope this helps. I'm moving to 4th grade this year and I need to think of some fun ways that they can practice spelling. Any ideas?
