Materials Required: sidewalk chalk, spelling list for each student, blank sidewalk
Activity Time: 20 minutes
Concepts Taught: spelling

This is a great activity for a beautiful day when your students are eager to be outside! Here is an idea to help
them practice their spelling words and have fun too. Give each student a colorful piece of sidewalk chalk and a copy of their spelling list. Head outside to the nearest and safest sidewalk and have them write their words as many times as you see fit. They are having so much fun that they don't even realize they are learning! You can take this time to enjoy the sunshine while monitoring their progress.
