Word Study Spelling Charts
Inspire your spoken language games and movable alphabet work with these charts! These charts offer a whole new round of word study vocabulary ideally suited for memory, spelling, and dictation games. Read these charts to yourself to inspire your spoken language games. Then, use them to extend the work the children began with the Word Study Cards.
When two children are working together, one child can read a word on the chart while the other child tries to spell it with the movable alphabet or chalkboard. Children then use the chart to check their own work. When one child is working alone, they cover half of the card (e.g., animal homes) and have to remember what is missing before writing it down.
