Hop on our Montessori Spelling Train

Let's be honest, sometimes lists of spelling words aren't much fun to work with.  They can lack meaning, be too challenging, or just be plain tedious for youngsters.  But what if you could hop on a Spelling Train and practice your spelling words or learn new words, or even create sentences with fast chug-chug fun?  Of course, I'd want to get on and practice my spelling and vocabulary words too!!  Wouldn't you?

Today's resource, the Spelling Train, was inspired by our recent trip to the Rockies.  The Rockies are train country up here in B.C., Canada and what better way to keep memories of our trip alive then with printable train themed learning fun. 

Print out our free .PDF file.  Cut apart the pieces and instruction card.  Gather a list of words you want to use in your spelling or vocab fun.  Have the kiddos practice spelling the words or making sentences by finding the individual pieces (train cars) and connecting them to the train (steam engine or handcar provided). 

The Spelling Train file contains:
-Four of each letter of the alphabet in four different colours - red, yellow, green, blue.  Vowels are on their own sheet in case more of these popular letters are needed.
-Grammar pieces in four colours including: apostrophe, comma, period, question mark, exclamation point, open quotation mark, and close quotation mark. 

Feel free to make your collection as big or as small as you want.  A larger collection means that children can practice together.  Older kids can play a slightly competitive style of trying to spell words or make phrases the quickest.  Fun for all ages!

We hope that your children enjoy using the Spelling Train and look forward to practicing hands on spelling fun.

Hi friends,

After playing a bit with this game last night, we figured out that we also wanted upper case letters and some blank train cars to separate the words in a sentence. So I have added those to the current file. It is now twelves page instead of six pages. Feel free to download them again if you want new the additions.

Hopes this helps some.

Blessings, Kalei

This will be very useful. I'm always trying to find way to teach spelling without boring the kids into a stupour.

I have been trying more and more lately to create some hands on learning resources in a more Montessori style. I usually start the year off trying to be more formal and then I always end up reverting back to what works well - as always - putting the fun

Always good to hear from you!!
