Hangman is a great go-to game when it comes to spelling words.
If you have your child use a copy of their spelling list, it will be easier for them to narrow down which word you’re using.
Though it requires a little prep work, this is a fun way to practice the words.
Once you have a set of sandpaper letter stencils, your child can arrange each word, place a piece of paper over it, and make a rubbing with pencil or crayons.
However, it is important to think about the most appropriate ways to build a learner’s vocabulary.
Learning lists of words out of context is of limited use.
Just as saying the words out loud can help an auditory learner, literally building the words can be helpful for more visual learners.
Just keep in mind you might need more than one set of magnetic letters to spell all the words.
Each week your child is likely to come home with a spelling word list in which they will have a test at the end of the week.
It’s their job to study and learn the words, but simply looking at them isn’t going to do the trick.
