With Holly's spelling each week I try to mix it up a bit. Typically I will set her up with an art project focused on her spelling words or a secret code game, maybe a scavenger hunt or riddles to solve. This week I broke out our little word tiles that are linked with coins. She spelled each word on her list, added up the total and wrote it next to that work in her book. After she was all done, I paid her for the most expensive word. Before she started she made a prediction as to which word would be the winning word... she learned her prediction was wrong. This was a fun lesson that tied in both math and spelling!!
