Spelling greatness

What an amazing array of ways to teach spellings. The games are brilliant and will suit every pupil's ability. The pupils I teach are all very different with very different abilities in the same class. I will be able to teach a spelling lesson without any of them knowing they have different work, that will be commensturate to their own abilities. Brilliant. Thank you Mark & Helen.

Spelling Games Pack

So many versatile and engaging games to make overlearning enjoyable - thank you so much. My students love these games.

Very versatile pack.

This is a lovely pack which fits in with many Topics likely to be explored during the school year. The variety of crosswords and wordsearches at different levels of difficulty is fantastic. The pack could be used with varying age groups and levels of ability. My only minor criticism is that wordsearches have word lists in lower case, or capital letter and then lower case, but the grids themselves are upper case. This has the potential to cause confusion for some pupils with dyslexia or other learning difficulties. It could be useful to have different versions. Eg all lower case for both word lists and grids, or all upper case. The flip side of this is it gives the pupils opportunity to transfer knowledge of upper and lower case letters while completing the wordsearches. The crosswords are lovely and good brain training for pupils. Thankyou for yet another useful pack!

Thanks for your review, Marianne. We appreciate your comments about the case of the letters in the word searches and this is something that we have addressed in the word searches that we have been making recently.

Lots of fun activities to improve spelling

A wonderful selection of fun activities to improve spelling. My pupils have enjoyed the crosswords which can be linked to topic work. The spelling mazes and word searches have been great homework activities.

Treasure Trove

What a treasure trove of resources. Even my group of 14 year old girls loved the spelling battleships, thank you!

Fantastic Pack

There are so many wonderful resources and activities in this pack. My kids love it! They are engaged and motivated when these sets of games are taken out. Thanks so much 🙂

Super Spelling Fun!

A great way to promote learner autonomy with spelling battleships. This lends itself to so much more than spelling- reinforcing topic vocabulary, practising prefixes- great stuff- thank you!

Love it!!

Got to say, this pack has been a lifesaver over the last few days! As students are trying to wind down for the holidays, but we need/want them to be learning, I have had to think of other ways to keep them engaged, and this pack has really helped! The 60 second spelling challenges are brilliant, and today we are going to try and play spelling battleships!
Thanks for a great resource!

Another useful pack of resources!

Am loving this new resource pack and have already printed and laminated many of the games and activities - thank you! Would it be possible to have a landscape copy of the spell into space game to accommodate larger writing and/or longer words, please?
As always, a great range of imaginative activities which the children really enjoy.

Thanks for your lovely review (and great suggestion) Karen. I have just created a landscape version of the 'Spell into Space' game and added it to the pack!
