A fun Christmas spelling game!
Before class, cut out construction-paper letters to spell out a Christmas phrase or message (Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Season’s Greetings, Happy New Year, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, etc.).
To play, give each student a letter (or two), then have them line up to spell out their Christmas message. Take a picture of the finished product to send to their parents!
Variation A: Make two sets of letters, and have two teams race to spell out their message.
Variation B: Make two sets of different letters, assign two students a phrase each, and have them figure out who can help them spell it.
Variation C: Hide the letters around the classroom, and have students look for them before spelling the phrase.
Variation D: Hand each student a piece of paper, and assign each student a letter to write and illustrate beautifully. When they’re finished, have them make the sentence and pose for a picture.
