YUMMY spelling practice

Welcome! New to ABC and 123? Please check out our FAQ in the sidebar.

Wow! I feel like I already know you all. I love posting on ABC and 123. This is my 4th post! I'm Rachelle from, What the Teacher Wants!

Do you have a hard time coming up with a variety of ways to practice your child/students' spelling words each week? I have found that using food can be a great {yummy} way to practice for all ages!

Pixie stick spelling-





Supplies:

  • 1 or 2 bags of pixie sticks (They really only need about 1 small pixie stick each)
  • Paper Plate
  • Printable
  • Popsicle stick (or toothpick)

Tip:
I give my students one word at a time to spell in their pixie stick candy. When we finish all of the words, they can eat 2 pinches! I don't want them all hyped up on sugar all day!

Fruit Loop Spelling-

  • Fruit Loops Cereal (I give my kiddos one dixie cup full)
  • Printable

Rice Spelling (not edible, just fun)-
Supplies:
  • Rice
  • Container
  • Printable

Tip: I put the rice in pencil boxes.

Additional food items to use for spelling practice:
  • pudding
  • apple sauce
  • Apple Jacks
  • Shaving Cream (I know it's not a food, but it's fun)
  • Twizzler's Pull and Peel

  10. @anonymous- So sorry! It's just the font I use! It's so cute, but it doesn't have any upper case letters! Sorry...I'll change it and email it to you if you send me your email. :)
