Spelling game for young students
An elementary school teacher developed this method of helping with spelling and the kids
really enjoy Sacawac.
For example if your student has a list of spelling words for the week, read over them together
and really focus on each word and look at it.
Get them to close their eyes and visualize the word in their head (might not want to at first,
but once they ‘get it’ they will)
Next cover the words (either one at a time for younger kids or all at once for older) and ask
the student to write the word(s) down, finally uncover the list and check how they have done. If
they got it right, heap praise, if they got it wrong do SACAWAC again, for example. “You were
nearly right, lets study the word again and see what the difference is, now cover it again and
write it again “
By turning it into a game it becomes less of a chore
Try it out and see!
