Be a Word Doctor 
(visual/kinesthetic )

Tell children that they are going to be word doctors. Give each child ten dog bones that you have cut from construction paper. Have them write one spelling word on each bone, spelling some words correctly and some incorrectly. Children then trade bones with a partner. Partners become word doctors, crossing out any words that are spelled wrong and "fixing them up." Partners check one another's corrections, then combine all the bones and sort them into categories they determine.
