Word hunt!

If there are any words your child is finding difficult to spell or read, you could play this game.

Put the words on post it notes/pieces of paper and hide them around your house.  You could hide them anywhere indoors or outside, under their bed or even in their coat pockets.

When your child finds these words they have to read them or write them down. Time how long it takes your child to find all the words then see if they can beat the time when you repeat the activity.


Jigsaw game!

Write word your child is learning on a piece of paper and then cut out each letter. Your child then has to put the pieces back together to make the word. Once your child is more familiar with the words you could write sentences which include the spelling words, cut up these sentences into individual words and children put back together  and read the sentence. This helps your child  to use their spelling words in context.
