A competitive spelling activity for small classes

To do this ESL activity:

  • Place two chairs in the front facing the class.
  • Divide your class into teams and have two students from each team come sit in the front.
  • Give them a word to spell.
  • The first one to spell it correctly gets a point for their team.
  • Have the next set of students come forward to sit.
  • Continue

You can have the rest of the students help them spell if they don't remember. You can also have a student say a word for the two seated to spell.

"Hi Ian! I loved the course! It wasn't really difficult, but it was not easy - and I feel like I learned a lot. I definitely plan to continue using the resources. I have applied for and set up over 7 interviews already in China. If you add on various additional certs, like Young learners and what not I would take those. I plan to take a job in China and blog about it for the year to qualify for the 1000 hour cert. Thanks so much for an awesome learning experience" - Sandra Dee Bonadonna, TEFL 120
