Add excitement to your spelling games! Players take turns running to a beanbag, turning it over, and choosing to either take the letter (if it works for the word they’re building) or set it back down. Teams then scramble to create a word worth at least 20 points; the point value is printed on each letter. The first team to do so wins! The set includes everything you need to get your game started, plus activity instructions.
Exercise While Spelling
Get your entire class thinking and moving at the same time with this fun game! Scatter beanbags throughout the playing area with letters face down. Players on each team take turns running to grab a letter, choosing to either bring it back to their team or leave it face down and come back without a letter.
The game is great to get students moving and communicating with each other. Players will help each other with letter placement, or to return the letter back to the main pile so they can better set themselves up for a 20-point word.
Each square, cotton bag measures 5” on all sides. One side has the AlphaDash logo, and the other side has a letter and scoring number. The 105 beanbags in the set allow for an unlimited number of word possibilities, helping students come together and think about their possible letter combinations.
The bags do not have to be used for just these games! Soft beanbags are great tools to introduce tossing and catching, as they are extremely durable and non-intimidating. With numbers and letters on each bag, you can easily come up with other types of games to teach in your class.
