Printable and Google Slides digital versions of the activity pages are included. Perfect for classroom use and distance learning at home!

To participate in each Seek & Spell Challenge activity, students manipulate a set of paper or digital letter tiles and try to create as many words as possible. While they are rearranging the letters, they try to find the mystery word made from ALL of the letters in the set.

Seek & Spell Challenge is an engaging word work strategy that builds foundational reading skills and improves spelling. Kids love it because it's fun, and they don't even know they're learning! Teachers love Seek and Spell Challenge because it's low prep, easy to differentiate, and effective!

Benefits of Using Seek & Spell Challenge

Seek & Spell Challenge is more than a fun word game. When used regularly, it can boost spelling, phonics, and word recognition skills significantly. As your students search for words, they are decoding the letter arrangements and analyzing words. To do this, they will work with word families, learn to identify prefixes and suffixes, and begin to recognize sight words quickly. As your students check the spellings of the words, they will develop dictionary skills and the ability to use other word reference tools. Over time, you’ll notice that your students no longer have to look up every word because they can spell most commonly used words. Best of all, the hands-on aspect of manipulating the letter tiles keeps students engaged and on task. In fact, the activity is so motivating and fun that your students will beg you for a new mystery word each week!

The materials are aligned with Common Core standards in the areas of Language and Foundational Reading Skills for grades 2 through 5.
