Spelling Game – Hop To It
Help your child to write the spelling words on sheets of paper, one word per sheet. (Sheets of computer paper or grocery bags torn apart with words printed in colorful marker would be good for this activity.)
Arrange the sheets in a cluster in the floor, words facing up.
The sheets should be spaced to allow your child to jump or hop comfortably from one to another.
Explain that you will make up a sentence, leaving out a word and have your child should jump to the sheet and spell the word that best completes the sentence.
After the word has been “landed” on and spelled correctly, your child can pick up and hold onto the sheet.
Continue in this way until your child has collected all of the words.
Reverse roles: the parent hops and the child composes the sentence!
