One of the ways I have my students get ready for a spelling test is by creating what we call Spelling Art. Using their twenty spelling words, they create any piece of art that they'd like. The only rules:
- Use all of the words.
- Use color.
- Have fun.
Most students will use a pencil to outline the picture and then add the words along those lines, adding color as they go. I always love seeing what my students come up with. Sometimes they are personal statements:
Sometimes they come with a punchline: "I like minions."
Occasionally a student turns in an incredible work of art:
And then there are those that are just so amazingly cool that you want to share them with everyone you see...like Taryn's spelling art...
of a spelling test!
