It’s the beginning of a spelling game series! Today’s game features short a and a-e words.

If you haven’t noticed, I’m moving into low or no-prep games these days. Because I know you’re busy, and so am I! This one fits into the “no-prep” category – yay! Just print the game board and grab some paper, pencils, a die, and playing pieces.
Take turns rolling the die and moving your playing piece around the snake. When you land on a picture, name it. Then spell it on your paper. The pictures are of either short a words (like bat, pan, and cap) or a-e words (like snake, cake, and grape).
Bonus! If you spell the word correctly, think of a word that rhymes. Then spell it correctly on your paper and move ahead a bonus space.
The first to End, wins.
Since I was playing this with my son, I was able to check his spellings for accuracy. When you have students paired up for this game, they will need to check each other’s spellings and bring a spelling to you if they’re not sure if it’s correct.
Have fun – and stay tuned for many more free spelling games!
