Lesson Plan

  • Organize students into groups, and provide each group with a set of alphabet cards. Students will divide the alphabet cards among themselves.
  • Tell students you will call out a spelling word and the first group to spell the word correctly will earn the number of points assigned to that word. Explain that you have assigned a point value to each word, based on its difficulty.
  • Call out a word and its point value, and have students use their letters to spell the word.
  • The group that has the most points when time is up wins the game.
