Lesson Plan

All students will love this spelling activity. Students who learn in tactile (hands-on) ways will benefit most!

Squirt each student's desktop with shaving cream. Have the students spread an even layer of the cream over their desks. Call out spelling words one at a time and have students spell those words by writing in the cream. Students will master spelling words and clean their desks while having a great time!


This activity will provide hands-on practice to help students achieve scores of at least 80 percent on the weekly spelling tests.
