Rainbow Writing

Try rainbow writing for a colorful way to practice your spelling words.

Sometimes you just need a little color in your life. It makes everything so bright, cheerful, and fun - even spelling words.

Today we're going to practice our spelling words with rainbow writing. This is a method I learned from my girls' teachers over the years. They use it to learn everything from names and phone numbers to sight words and now spelling words.

To set-up: You will need some lined paper and colorful writing utensils. We used crayons, but you can also use colored pencils or colored gel pens. (If you use markers, beware! Your words may end up looking brown and not rainbow colored.)

Choose 7 or 8 colors. Start writing your words with one color, then keep writing over it with each additional color. When you get done, your words will look like rainbows.

If you've got a kid who loves rainbows or just need to brighten a dreary day, try some rainbow writing the next time your child needs to practice spelling words.
