Leaping for Spelling





"Leaping for Spelling"

We call this activity leaping because we pretend to be frogs on lily pads.  We try to go from letter to letter, or lily pad to lily pad, without falling in the water until our word is complete.  


Please have fun with these words!  You can practice through games, art, and writing!

Please note that these words will need to be practiced throughout the year because they become part of our spelling dictation sentences each week.  Therefore, you may want to find a special place to keep all of the spelling lists!
