Spelling Lists That Entertain The Brain

To make this “chore” into a really enjoyable (and memorable) experience, try these tricks:

1) Make up silly sentences using each one of the spelling words individually.

2) Make up a funny story involving all of the words at once.

You don’t have to write out these out. You can just have fun with it by talking back and forth with your child, if that what works best for you at the time.

Spelling list example:

  1. played                                     11. angry
  2. isn’t                                        12. clapped
  3. sister                                      13. happy
  4. stopped                                 14. brother
  5. back                                       15. stand
  6. you’re                                     16. baby
  7. puppy                                     17. hugging
  8. silly                                        18. other
  9. wouldn’t                                19. jogging
  10. I’ll                                           20. mother

Funny Story:

One day, my puppy went jogging without me! He was angry because I stopped standing on my head. “You’re supposed to be a happy puppy!” I yelled as I clapped my hands. But, he wouldn’t come back. My brother and sister started making silly faces, but even that didn’t work. Next, I heard my mother yell, “If that puppy isn’t back here in five minutes then you’re gonna have to stand on your head till he returns!” “I’ll find him!” I shouted. Then, I had an idea. I found my baby sister and made her stand on her head. Then, my happy puppy came back. We all started hugging and then we played for the rest of the day.

Lame is my middle name

I think its possible that I just wrote the lamest story of all time!
Well, you get where I’m going with this. Just make it interesting and fun, and your kids will be much more likely to remember these words and how to use them properly.

  1. That’s great!!! My kids need English spelling lists…thanks for the reminder to search for some.

    My youngest and I played a game today where we wrote words, cut them out, turned them over, mixed them up and tried to make sentences. After a few rounds she wanted to revert to a game of “memory” it was fun finding ‘word pairs’ (my name & hers was one and so was ‘dancing’ and ‘disco’)
