It's All Fun and Games -- Hopscotch!

Today, we want to send you on a wild game of hopscotch, hopscotching through our blogs to collect various games you can use in your classroom!

This is


And today, I have a great freebie game for you.  This is a spelling gameboard I pulled out of my Quick Activities for Spelling pack.

This is a great game to use either as teams (you can project it onto a board and use circles to keep track of the teams), or with the children working with partners.  I let my students use it on Friday mornings after they finish their morning work.  They are allowed to work as teams, so four children playing all together, two teams of two.  The children would get out their spelling notebooks, and first they had to give each other words from the current spelling list.  Then, they could go back to any lesson to quiz each other on the words.  One team gives the word, the other team spells.  The first team checks the spelling, and if it is correct, the second team moves forward a space.  Then they switch, and the second team gives the word, the first team spells, and the second team checks.  They continue until someone wins the game.  My students really looked forward to Friday mornings and spelling game time.

As I said, this is part of my larger spelling unit, Quick Spelling Activities

As a special bonus to this game, I will have this resource on sale for 50% off all day tomorrow.  I hope you enjoy the hopscotch freebie!
