Spelling & Art

This week with Holly's spelling words she created a fall sun flower art project. It turned out really cute and was a fun way to practice her spelling words just one more time. It is nice to enjoy activities like art or a game with the mundane work of weekly spelling words, she really enjoys it and it appears to be effective.

On 12 yellow flower petals I wrote her spelling words out, she copied them. Then she glued them around the center of her flower - in retrospect I should have had her alphabetize them... maybe a different time. Once glued down she created a stem with leaves and added. The final touch was adding painted sunflower seeds by adding dots.

This was super simple to create, however she LOVED it!


  1. I found your blog about a month ago and love it. You have great ideas. We homeschool and my daughter is the same age as yours and they seem very similar in what they like. Thanks for sharing and hope you keep it up.

  2. Super cute - love the educational value & beauty of of the craft! Thanks for linking to TGIF Linky Party!
