I am sharing another little hack I found that helps when doing revision of spelling words for homework: this little spelling box! Building words with foam letters are so much more fun than ordinary letter cards!
I made a Little Maths Box the other day to practice sums, and then I had more little boxes and decided to make ones for spelling too.
All you need is:
- First, I made a CVC words box, just for three letter words, hence the three dot stickers. I added craft foam letters to the box. Tip: add more than one of the more frequent letters.
Add the spelling word flashcards your child is revising so he/she can build the words independently. He can read the word, turn the flashcard around and build it, then check again.
I then made a little box with four dots so one can spell CVCC or CCVC(or any 4 letter word for that matter) because we are starting with those spelling words soon.
Our little learning boxes are coming in very handy during homework time, for sure!
