Follow Me…a great reading/spelling activity

I introduced my one Spelling lesson this week with this fantastic “Follow Me” game from the SEN Teacher Website.

You type in your list of Spelling Words, and it automatically prints out cards for you…as easy as that. If your Spelling words are, for example, snake, shake and baking, the cards will go:

I have snake, who has baking?

I have baking, who has shake?

The kids LOVED it. I didn’t explain the activity at all. Just made them turn over their cards and start. We had to loop through them more than once. Will definitely do this one again – it would be amazing with sight words or theme words.

Got any other great ideas for introducing a new Spelling lesson? I would love to hear them.

    You should change your blog to supermum. My Mom never had time or energy to do everything you do when we were growing up. An Aunt of mine used to say kids of to-day are born clever but she could not understand where all the bloody fools came from

    I’m going to try this when I have my older grand-children here. They love to read and pretend they are the teacher, especially my oldest grand-daughter.

    What a great idea! All three of my children have a learning differnce and this would work wonderfully with them, especially my 9 year daughter with special needs. Thanks for a great site. I found you on Bloggy Moms. I’m now a very happy follower!

    We call that “Whose got your…” I play it with numbers but there are tons of books on all different kinds of things you can do it with. I love that one.
