Spelling is a dull dry subject for my boys. And a frustrating one sometimes. So it is the subject I try to be the most creative in planning.

we have the game nanofictionary . It is a card game that has Character cards, Problems, Resolutions, settings.. and some action cards (like steal a setting from someone else, etc).It's a fun story teling card game.
You draw cards and collect the elements if your story. The first person ready gets extra points, (then 2nd gets 1 less extra, 3rd gets 2 less......), but you get more points for having extra characters and stuff... so you could be ready last and have as many points as the guy that is ready to tel his story first.

I seperated the character chards out this morning. The characters are things like:
The evil twin
a black cat
FBI agent in disguise
mad scientist
senient broccoli
the guy that says DUDE
The 3 wise men

The boys are to draw cards at random, one for each spelling word- and made a sentence with each word/card combo.They are in thhere laughing and making up sentences right now.I have a sore throat. Gavin and Connor took turns with the morning's story reading for me.

Ki did extra sentences. He seemed to like this assignment.
