A fun Spelling lesson called Spelling Battleship
6, 5, 4, 3
Spelling Battleship Grades 3-6 by Alisha Gilkison
Objective: The students will practice spelling vocabulary, make use of a grid, and develop a positive attitude toward learning.
Materials: A makeshift battleship gameboard. A-E/1-6
Procedure: Have each student pick a given number of spelling words from the list and write them arbitrarily on the battleship grid. They must have a partner for this game. The first player guesses a coordinate. For example, B-2. If there is a word in that box the second player tells them the word. The first player must spell it correctly to gain a point. If the first player does not spell it correctly, he/she does not get the point and loses the turn. However, they may guess the coordinate again. The first student to get all the words spelled correctly wins.
