Creepy crawlies

Module 5

Spelling

1.Spelling can be fun!

Game 1: Word chains

  1. You can play this game in groups.
  2. One person begins by writing down a word. The next person must begin the next word with the last letter of the previous word, e.g.

Chewagoneverainbowestearacevilabel

  1. Can you circle your classroom with a word chain?

Game 2: Growing words

Begin with a one letter word, such as i, a or o. Make the word grow, by adding one letter at a time. Each time you must make a new word, e.g.

a o
an do
ant nod
pant node
paint nodes
paints

Challenge your friends to see how long a list they can make.

Game 3: Word-loop

  1. Decipher this word-loop. Read clockwise.
  2. All letters are to be used. Do not use words more than once.
  3. Sometimes small words may be found within bigger ones.

Game 4: Time Trials

  1. The challenge is: How many 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 syllable words, beginning with …, can you write down in 60 seconds:
  2. No dictionaries may be used. Break up into smaller groups to check each other’s words.
  3. Keep score, giving values to the words according to syllables / length.

Game 5: Scrambled Eggs

Just as all things are connected in this world, letters can be connected in so many different ways. Below are a bunch of eggs with a letter on each one. See how many words you can scramble up; but no jumping over the eggs!

HOW TO LEARN A SPELLING WORD!!

'CH' 'NCH' 'TCH'
'ch' follows a long vowel 'nch' follows a short vowel 'tch' follows a short vowel
church pinch thatch

Assessment

LO 6

LANGUAGE STRUCTURE AND USE The learner will know and be able to use the sounds, words and grammar of the language to create and interpret texts.

We know this when the learner:

6.1 works with words:

6.1.1 uses prefixes, stems and suffixes/extensions to form words;

6.1.3 records words in a personal dictionary;

6.1.4 uses phonics and spelling rules to spell words correctly;

6.2 works with sentences:

6.2.3 identifies and uses nouns, pronouns, prepositions, articles and conjunctions;

6.2.6 consolidates use of punctuation learned so far.
