Use words from the common exception word list to complete a spelling activity.


Below are some ideas for spelling activities:

  • Choose 5 words from the list and then write a synonym (a word which means the same), an antonym (a word which means the opposite), the meaning of the word and an example of how to use the word in a sentence.
  • Choose 10 words and write them in different styles e.g. rainbow/colourful writing, curly writing, bold writing, fancy writing.
  • Choose 10 words and write them in different materials e.g. chalk, pebbles, paint, water.
  • Ask an adult/older sibling to quiz you on the spellings.
  • Use the Spelling Frame website to practise your words.
