Whether you’re a homeschooling parent, a classroom teacher looking for a buddy game to use in the classroom, or a parent who’s helping your child get ready for the weekly test — here’s a game for you!
A spelling game for any word list
Climb the Ladder Spelling Game:
1. Read a spelling word from your child’s list. She should write the word on the bottom rung of the ladder.
2. If the word is incorrect, your child should cross out her incorrect spelling and write the correct spelling (with your help) next to the misspelled word. The next spelling word should go on the same rung.
3. When your child spells a word correctly on the first try, she may move to the next rung for her next spelling word.
4. When she reaches the top, she’s done!
Obviously you will want to choose the words that are most challenging to your child to ensure she gets practice on the toughies.
