Hunter, our second grader, is not the biggest fan of writing. He is reading well and will be working on handwriting this year, but I wanted him to move forward with spelling even if he isn’t totally confident with writing.
Enter Scrabble tiles.
For his first spelling test this year, he used the tiles and a rack from the board game to spell each of his ten spelling words…and then surprised me by knocking out the five bonus words perfectly (which he didn’t study at all during the week).
100% on his first ever spelling test? I call that a success!
