Spelling Series: Rainbow Words

Welcome back to the Spelling Alternatives for 1st Grade blog series! Here's a sneak peek at the entire series:

Rainbow Words

Rainbow words have become my go-to Friday spelling practice activity. What I love the most about them is that you can recycle an old piece of paper by using the back of it for this activity. The idea behind it is so simple, but it truly is great practice. The best part of this activity is that it is something the kids can easily do at home to practice their spelling words.

-blank paper

-Students start at the bottom of the page making a small semi circle at the bottom with the first word/color.
-Students slowly add more lines by changing colors for each word.

Teacher Tip: For students who have a hard time forming the semi-circle, I show them how to trace something round like a bowl or a roll of tape.
