Sometimes there are just some spelling words that don’t stick. We need extra practice for these spelling words and unfortunately lots of extra practice can mean lots of complaining too. So I came up with this spelling gamesDart Gun Spelling Practice!
Spelling Games - FREE Dart Gun Spelling Practice

This is a {FREE} fun, active way for homeschool kids to practice their spelling words.  We laminate both sheets so we can use them over and over without re printing.

Spelling Games with Dart Guns  

Battle Mode

As you stumble upon words your child frequently misspells (or your weekly spelling list) write them down on the sheet with lots of dart gun lines. When you are ready to practice grab two dart guns – whatever kind you have on hand. Have the parent say the word they need spelled. If you child spells it correctly they get to shoot you and you can mark it off your list. If they misspell the word you get to shoot them.
This is especially great for active boys. You can also use water guns outside during the summer months.

Solo Mode

Using the bullseye sheet write down four words your child needs to practice on the orange lines. Have you child stand back 10-15 feet. They can aim for the word they want to spell. If they hit it they need to spell it. If they hit a bullseye they get all new words (a nice relief if the words are difficult for your child). Note: I usually cycle through the words several times so hitting the bullseye doesn’t mean they will never learn to spell it.

My kids always learn better (and with less complaining) when things are fun! So when I can I try to take mundane tasks and make them fun. I hope your children enjoy learning their spelling words with dart guns as much as mine did!

        1. Suggestion for use: Laminate both sheets and use dry erase markers to write the words on both. This will minimize printing, thus saving on ink. :)
