    I have thought of two ideas. The first one is rainbow spelling. We use manilla paper and place screens underneath and then the students use 5 crayons to make the words look like a rainbow. In other words they are writing each word 5 times and they don't even realize it. You really don't have to use the screens. The other idea is to have the students write each word on an index card. They will need to write each word on two index cards and when they are done they can play memory with a friend. They will only need to play with one of the friend's game. Each student will have his/her own memory game to take home to practice. I thought of two more ideas. You could write all of the letters of the spelling works on a piece of paper. ( about 2 inches per letter) and the students can cut the letters apart and then they can work with a buddy to find the letters to spell each word. For example, the buddy might call out the first spelling word, frog, and then the other partner would take his or her letters to spell the word frog and then they would write it on a piece of handwriting paper. The two partners would alternate calling out words until both partners had called out and spelled every spelling word. My last idea is to make a pot of gold out of construction paper and glue to on to a piece of paper and then make little yellow circles (gold) to glue onto the pot. On each circle the students will need to write a spelling word. I had my students write each word twice. I hope these ideas help.
