Lesson Plan Title : Spelling Board

Age Range: Kindergarten through Grade 2 (Early Elementary or Primary Level)

Overview and Purpose : Who doesn't like building blocks? Students will be eager to get their hands on these paper bricks to arrange them into different spelling words and shapes.

Objective: The student will be able to spell words using paper bricks on a bulletin board.


Bulletin board

List of spelling words

Laminated bricks with the letters for the words written on them

Blank laminated bricks

Velcro pieces on the back of each brick and strips of it running across the bulletin board


This interactive bulletin board will allow students to practice their spelling by using the bricks to build a word wall. Encourage them to see what shapes they can create with the words. Can they stack them like a pyramid or make a truck? The students will enjoy manipulating the bricks while they are learning to spell the words.


More advanced students can be given a certain group of letter bricks to see if they can figure out which word from their spelling list the letters spell.
