Spelling Games

Free kids spelling games, fun to play, easy to make, perfect for families to play together

Do you have a child that seems to struggle with his or her spelling? Some children seem to be natural spellers while others seem to always have difficulty with it.

I have some of both. Out of my seven children I have four who are natural spellers and three who have always found it an effort.

If you would like to encourage your child to improve in his or her spelling ability without putting too much pressure on them, then playing games is a fun way to do this.

Here are a few, simple, free spelling games you can play as a family which involve spelling or knowing the alphabet. You may be able to use some of them to reinforce and practise your child's weekly spelling words. Otherwise just use them to have fun with words. The more your child practises using and seeing words the more he or she will eventually pick up and remember.

As you play, talk and laugh together, not only will your child's spelling improve but you will be building something far more important in your family relationships.
