Fast Spellers

Divide your class into four groups. Make four sections on the blackboard. Have your students practice their spelling words by having one person from each group go to the board and spell the word you call out. The person who finishes first will get a point for their team. They can simple make a tally mark at the top of the board above their team's section.
