you want to lose the boredom of having your students write their
spelling words 5 times each? Well, with this activity, they'll
be spelling the words at least 25 times each without ever complaining!
Pass out a blank white sheet of paper to each student. Then pass
out a copy of a simple picture from your clip art file or a coloring
book. Place the blank piece of paper on top of the design and
staple once. Now instruct your students to write their words following
the black lines that can be seen through the paper. Pretty soon,
they will have "drawn" out the picture by simple writing
the spelling words multiple, multiple, multiple times! Finally
take the stapled pictures apart, and you have a spelling picture
to be proud of!
