Spelling Race Game Before class, create a grid on paper that contains all the letters needed to build the spelling words for the week. Put one letter in each box of the grid. Copy for each student. On Monday, allow the students to cut out the letters and put in a baggie. Each day, let the students practice putting the letters together to build the words. Before the test, let the children "race" in groups to put the words together. The winner races the teacher.
