Today we tried a new and fun way to do our spelling. We went fishing for spelling words!
I filled the bath tub half way with water and added a few drops of blue food coloring into it for fun. Then we dumped in all of our magnetic alphabet letters.
My kids found a big stick outside. We turned it into a fishing pole with some ribbon and a magnet tied onto the end.
We brought our spelling and sight word lists into the bathroom with us. The kids had to fish out the letters to spell their words. Then they wrote the words on the dry erase board.
Another fun variation- Pull the curtain so they can’t see the letters. Have them fish out four or five letters and see what words they can spell with those letters.
You and your kids have got to try fishing for spelling words. It will make your spelling lessons so much more fun. I promise!
