Spelling and Word Games, a TESiboard Collection

This group of resources features templates that can all be edited by you to create tailor-made spelling and reading games for your pupils.

There are two versions of each game - one for high frequency and tricky words, with sets to choose from, and another version for you to add your own words. Why not use key words from your topic? Or maybe characters from your class book, or key vocabulary from a guided reading text?

Ideal for starting or ending a literacy session or injecting a bit of fun into spelling lists!
