Spelling Games are fun ways to improve your child’s knowledge of the English language but if you have a child who finds spelling a challenge, then it’s also a brilliant method for helping them. Spelling games allow children to learn in fun ways and it’s also one of best ways to encourage even the most reluctant spellers to practice. However finding spelling games isn’t always easy and your google search brings up online spelling games rather than board games. This is why we’ve searched for unusual and fun spelling games that you can actually buy rather than games you can play online.
Orchard Toys have a brilliant range of literacy toys that have been specially designed to help children who struggle with reading, writing and spelling. At What 2 Buy 4 Kids we stock all of their amazing spelling games but our favourite is Orchard Toys Match & Spell.
Match & Spell is designed for children aged 4 plus as it contains a wide selection of everyday three and four-letter words. Children can match the right letters and make the correct sounds to spell, read, and say the words. Depending on the age of the child and their skill level, there are different ways to play the game which means that Match & Spell is very accommodating for a range of abilities.
The first way to play this game, encourages children to match letters, sound out, and read which is geared towards younger children, whereas the second game focuses on phonetics. As you can see, this multi level game suits a range of abilities which means that children can play with it no matter how old they are and this is just another reason why we adore this game so much.
So if your child needs a helping hand with their spelling and you’re after a game that can help them progress, once they’ve mastered the basics, then Match & Spell is just what you need.
