My oldest is always game for a new learning activity. The other morning he started talking about some CVC rhyming words. I asked him how to spell the words he was saying. This got me thinking about a spring and Easter spelling game to make a hands-on spelling activity. The free printable spring word lists make this easy to set up.
This activity is a fun one for practicing a bit more complex spelling with Easter words for early elementary school age children. It is a build-a-word game that fits right in with a Spring and Easter theme.

Here is what you need:
-free printable word lists: Easter words list or Spring words list (CLick the images above to download and print.)
1.) Print out 2 copies of the Spring words or the Easter words list by clicking on the images below. (One copy will be the guide. One copy will be the letter cards. You are welcome to print 2 copies of each list if you would like to use both.)
2.) Cut out each word from one sheet. (Keep the other copy intact as the guide.)
3.) Cut apart all of the letters of each word. Repeat this step for each word.
When all of the words have been cut apart, your child can begin.
I placed the guide paper in a plastic sleeve. It was arranged on the table with the cut out letters. I then explained to my kids that they match the letters to the words on the guide. We read through each word first.
Then he can open it up and try to build the word using the guide. If your child is older, you can eliminate the guide to make this activity more challenging.
Your child opens an egg, spells the word, self-checks using the guide, reads the word, then writes the word on the lined paper. The writing part is for first grade and up. It helps with handwriting practice and memory. That is it! Fun, simple and a nice way to use all those plastic eggs to make this Easter spelling game hands-on.
I store the letters in a ziploc baggie right in the plastic sleeve with the guide. Then it can all slip into a file cabinet or bin to be used again.
