Spelling lists for year 3 to 6. There is a file here which explains how it could work in your school. There are assessment sheets to work out which list each child should start on. Children learn using Look, Cover, Write, Check. Also use sand trays and magnetic letters to help children who struggle.They test each other in pairs at the end of the week and must get all correct, apart from one, to move on to the next list. They can highlight the ones they can do.

A selection of classic board games that I have adapted for independent use by children to practise or test each other on their 'weekly spelling words' in a fun and interactive way. I laminate the rules and game boards back to back so they last for a long time. The only other equipment required are counters and spelling words to be written on the spelling cards sheet and then photocopied and cut up for each playing pair

Make a human sized game board and play a game! We made our game board out of pillows. We used 10 pillows and rolled the die to move the corresponding number of spaces.

INSET training resource focusing on approaches to teaching SPAG. A good starting point for a discussion of the issues.

I am going to use this on an INSET day to start thinking about approaches to teaching SPAG. I have had to take out some of the slides but it might still make a good starting point for a discussion of the issues.
