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.
