Spell For Your Life- Printable Spelling Game Board

We have been needing a little extra spelling help lately, so I wanted to make a simple spelling game to play with my kids to practice their words. The game is very easy and fun to play with kids of all ages!

How to Play the Spell For Your Life Spelling Game:

To play, this simple spelling game, you will need a copy of the Spell for Your Life game board, a spelling list, dice, and some game pieces of your choice to play it. You can use coins, pieces from other games, buttons, erasers, or whatever small items you have around.Β 

I wrote my kids’ spelling words onto note cards cut into quarters. If you have kids on different levels playing, which I did, you can make it work for each of them. Just use a different spelling list and set of cards for each one of them. You can use different colored notecards for each child to distinguish them.

One way to make the spelling cards re-usable is to cut them and then laminate them. The cards can then be used with dry-erase markers and you can re-use them with different lists each week.

  2. I love this game! It’s so cool that it works on skills and not just rote memorization of the word. Plus, my son will be happy to play it with a name like, “spell for you life.” ha. We’ll be adding this to our word work activities. Also, I featured it on Mom’s library this week

  3. Here in UK, I used this activity this morning with older women learning English – beginners and post-beginners. They played in groups of 4, practising useful words for filling in forms such as nationality words. Lots of language used such as ‘She’s winning’ You’re cheating’ as well as reading the instructions!
