Act it Out 

Write the Basic Words on index cards and leave the stack face down on a table. Then have children work in pairs. One child draws a card from the stack and uses the word in a sentence, substituting pantomime movements for the word. Another child then says the missing word and spells it. Children can check the spelling by looking at the card.
