The first activity called Spin and Spell is an incredibly engaging activity that would be especially effective in the ESL classroom since it uses images and verbal pronunciations of all the words. The activity provides and extensive list of words and is organized into five categories. To spell a word, the kids touch on the next letter of the word contained in the spinning wheel. Each time a letter is selected, that letter is pronounced out loud. When they are done spelling the word, they touch on the Submit button to check their answer.
The second activity is called Word Strips. This is a very easy game to play but is a bit more challenging. To play, drag tiles into place to spell a four-letter word (each block of letters contains at least one word). The activity lets kids know immediately when they find a word and it automatically brings up the next word. This is a great activity to use in groups and you can use the built-in game timer to keep score.
