Here’s the type of ABC beads that we used for spelling words for this activity.
We grabbed our playdough from the Monster Math early this month to make it even more hands-on and kid-friendly fun. There are all sorts of alphabet beads, so have fun with what you choose.
Once my daughter had her spelling words for the week I had her sit and write out the word cards for the game which gave her practice writing the words out.
I like to keep scrapbook paper in our supplies to create quick and easy games with kids like this one with clouds.
Cut out the words into cards that you can draw to build. Then you can take the Letter beads and build each spelling word.
Rainbow Spelling Words
The next day you can have your child create rainbow sight words with the letter cards so for more practice. And then play the ABC Beads Spelling Game again.
Finding playful ways to practice spelling words in important for your younger students. It provides a multi-sensory experience for them to help learn a few styles of learning.
You could even take the beads the next day and create a little tossing letters with their hands game.
Encourage them to call out each letter as they toss it into a bowl for a spelling word!
