First, this is my motto for the next 3 weeks:
My whole family is going to Disney - I'm so excited! Actually, I'm just excited to have a break. We haven't had one since Christmas and that was less than a week and half long. Only 3 1/2 more weeks!!
Meanwhile, in the land of spelling...
stole borrowed this idea from Deb over at
It's a game called Roll and Spell. I was looking for a new activity for my kids for spelling and I stumbled upon her post. I thought, why not give it a try? Well...my kids go crazy for it! It's the funniest thing. They get so excited when I tell them that Roll and Spell is the activity for the day and when they have a free choice day, they automatically choose this one.
Deb has three different versions...original, rainbow spell and out loud version.
Rainbow version - they write the words in different colors depending on the number that they roll:
Original version - they write their words in different handwriting (big, small, fancy nancy, etc.)
Their favorite is the out loud one. They get to spell their words out loud in different voices (alien, baby, opera, etc). I tried videotaping it, but the rest of the class was too loud and you couldn't hear their voices.
