"Give me an A!" (Freebie!)

My student's parents have asked me about ways to practice spelling words at home.  The funny thing though, is that we do not have spelling words nor spelling tests.  Long story.
So, I quickly come up think of fun ways they can practice at home. I have had this list forever! Sometimes I include it in my Open House packet, sometimes I add ideas in my newsletter.
I have cutiefied (that is a word, right?) my list of ideas to share with my fabulous 25 followers (so excited!!) and all of you who come across this list.

"Give me an F"  ( you know...for Freebie).  I think I need some pom poms.


  1. Very thorough list! Thanks- great share :)!

  5. Cheering words is an option in our Speller's Choice homework as well!

    I know I would've picked it when I was 7!
