One thing I’ve realized over the past few weeks as I’m coming out of survival mode is I haven’t been posting many kid’s activities…and I love coming up with, doing, and sharing activities. So, I want to get back into that. I LOVE equipping moms with easy ideas to do with their kids.
This week, I have three spelling ideas to share with you, and our first idea is to practice spelling words with Tic-Tac-Toe! This is one of my favorites to use with two different kids on two different spelling lists. If you’re wondering, we use All About Spelling through 4th grade and then we use the lists from Classical Conversations Essentials list.
By the way, if you are on Periscope, I’d be so grateful if you’d follow me there—I’m trying a 30-day experiment to see if I can get over my fear and step out of my comfort zone. You can download the app and follow me at @stacieannnelson. I have a video up there on spelling ideas that will be available for the next 24 hours. You can also find it on YouTube.

- Dry Erase Markers
- Spelling List
1) Each person chooses one word from his/her spelling list. The first person writes their word in a tic-tac-toe spot. The next person writes their word in one spot. Continue to go back-and-forth writing spelling words until someone wins!
2) Choose the next word on the spelling list and play again.
I love that this game has kids writing their spelling words multiple times…and they don’t even realize it!
