Let's See How many you can get right. Ready?

1. abhor - abhor

2. alabaster - alabaster

3. boquet - bouquet

5. controversery - controversy

Congratulations, you got all five! Have a great day and enjoy your weekend! You will have another chance at spelling tic tac toe on Wednesday (so check the blog tomorrow).

Note: This game is based on actual spelling words, but includes some more difficult words.

All words are commonly misspelled. No new vocabulary or content has been added.

The background information was written by me (Daniela Ginta) and it's not to be copied verbatim! If you want to use this document for your students/classroom, please credit this source with my name and link back to my site. Thank you :) And good luck with your Spelling Tic Tac Toe game!

Are You a Grizzly?

This week I have another new idea, so sit back and enjoy! This week's event is going to be a spelling bee with an ordinary school twist. Since it is on a square grid, we will be playing Tic Tac Toe as a spelling game.

First, you draw a grid on a piece of paper, with the top left corner as (1, 1) and the bottom right corner as (5, 5). You will need to use this for reference whenever you move horizontally or vertically.

Second, each player will need to create their own grid and remember its location for later. Each player also needs to write down eight vocabulary words: one in each square of their grid. The only rules are that they must fit into an 8x8 table and that they must be written along the diagonal line of the grid so that they can be used as Xs and O's during the game. After all, players have completed this step, it is time to duke it out!

Each player takes their turn in order. In a turn, the player uses one of their words as an X or O.

So if players wanted to win Spelling Tic Tac Toe, they might consider writing

If you are playing this game, I hope that you are using the correct vocabulary words for your grade level! You can find these by researching Common Core Standards for your grade level and subject area. For example, third graders should be learning about Earth's layers. If they want to play this game next time they have class, it would make sense if they wrote ROCKS, GEOLOGY, etc. However, remember that spelling counts!
