I am a terrible speller. If you have been reading my blog for a while you probably know that. Sorry, I really do try, it just doesn’t stick. My poor spelling has long been a source of embarrassment and made me feel stupid for many years. I am adamant to make spelling fun for my kids so that they have the confidence to take on the challenge if a challenge ever presents itself. All of these games and activities are meant to have fun with spelling and to work on putting letter sounds together to make words. There are no drills or tests. The vast majority of these activities are for children in kindergarten through 2nd grade but could be adapted for younger children as well.

I love this idea! I have an Orton-Gillingham tutoring business, and I buy those stamps for all my tutors; this is another way we can use them!
Love these ideas! Can’t wait to start with my new Kinders next year! Thanks!
