60 Ways to Practice Spelling
http://tiny.cc/spellingtips

Here are two of the 60 unique, teacher submitted tips that were posted
yesterday to a Teachers.Net mailring:

36. Clothespin Spelling- The teacher cuts out the shapes of articles
of clothing from construction paper. A spelling words is written on
each piece of "clothing." The students then reproduce the spelling
words by hanging them on the clothes line with clothespins that have
the letters written on them, spelling out the word.

41. Pyramid Power- Give your students a weekly spelling assignment
with a different twist. Have students write their words in order of
difficulty. They write their easiest word once at the top of the paper
near the middle, the next easiest twice, and so on. Students will have
a pyramid shape when they are finished.
