Lesson Plan

Invite students to sit on the tops of their desks. Call out spelling words, and ask individual students to spell those words. If a student spells a word correctly, he or she stays on the desk and in the game. Students who misspell a word must sit at their desks and write the misspelled word five times. Students may reenter the game as soon as the writing assignment is completed. The winner of the game is the student who has had to write the fewest words.


Students who had to write during the game turn in their papers.
