Paint Your Spelling Words


Put down the pencil and pick up a paint brush. Today, we're going to paint our spelling words. This activity is always so popular with my youngest daughter that I'm not sure why we don't do it more often. We're still writing, we're still practicing, we're just using a different writing utensil.

So, if you've got beautiful weather and your kids just want to be outside, have them spend a few minutes writing their spelling words with sidewalk chalk.
