Active learning ideas for learning times tables
A great way of encouraging teamwork and independence in learning spellings. Give each team the same spellings set. Each pupil takes on a player (spelling) and must teach the rest of her/his team that spelling. What are the tricky bits to focus on? Spell it silly, mnemonic, etc.
Do a pre-test & collect scores. Do a post-test. The winning team are the ones with the highest difference between pre- and post-test. Or give one team a head-start. Click the text boxes to change the spellings. Easier spellings in defence. Some children could take on more spellings.
