As I was cleaning the stacked and piled school room, I came across this list. It is typed by me and printed out, so I do not know where I got it. It may not belong to anyone, and just be a collection of ideas I have found over time. If it is your's, or you know where it came from, please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due!
Fancy Letters ~ Use old magazines, catalogs, or newspaper to cut out letters and glue them down to spell your words.
Spelling Baseball - draw four bases on a piece of paper or set up four chairs to be the bases. Pitcher selects a word. If the batter can spell it correctly, he moves forward one base. If the batter can not spell the word correctly, he remains where he is. Child receives a point every time he crosses home base. ( Going to try this one, I think the kiddos will like it ~ especially using chairs and them being able to move around).
Snowman or scarecrow or hangman ~ On a wipe off board, draw a snowman with hat and three buttons. Play like hangman, but erase the parts of the snowman. Object is to guess the word before the snowman melts.
ABC Order & reverse
Connect the Dots - Played like Dots, but must spell a word correctly before you can draw a line.
Colorful words ~ use two different colors to write spelling words, one for constants and one for vowels. Makes it easier for someone who is a visual learner to picture in their head.
Scrabble - use scrabble tiles to spell words
Pyramid ~ use graph paper, write one letter at a time, making the word into a pyramid.
30 second words ~ fold paper in quarters ~ Write the spelling word in one corner and give the child 30 seconds to write the word as many times as they can
Picture words ~ Draw a picture and write the words in the picture
Scrambled words ~ write the words scrambled up and have the child figure them out.
