Spelling Bee

First grade spelling has been a challenge for us but with hard work she is doing it! The words have gone from memory words like me and the in kindergarten to spring and bubble in first grade!
Her school does not give a list of words to memorize for the test but rather they get a spelling rule like words ending in ng or le and any words that follow that rule are game for the test. Good for really learning but hard for practicing!

I have looked at YouTube videos and other sites to see how to work on spelling.

I found one that offered ideas for practicing writing the words in some creative ways.

I drew a big spiral and she wrote spelling words going around it to make a cool design! She was so proud of it and brought it to her teacher!
I was so excited for her when she got a 100 on her test! She was so proud of herself!
