The methods, teacher tips, and interactive activities in this collection will help students develop spelling skills.
Scholastic's interactive learning activities starring Clifford the Big Red Dog offer phonics fun to early readers.
With Make a Word (created for grades K–2), students create words by dragging missing vowels to them. Once they have created a word, a narrator sounds out the word, helping students practice identifying words with short-vowel sounds and sound spellings.
While participating in Make a Word, students will:
- Develop phonemic awareness skills
- Distinguish easily confused letter pairs
- Recognize common short and long vowel sound spellings
- Interact with the computer to create new text
