Friendly Pairs 
(visual/kinesthetic)

Invite children to work together to make paper people. Have them fold a piece of colored paper in half and draw a person on one half. Explain that one arm of the person must touch the fold. With the paper still folded, children cut out the figure, being sure not to cut through the fold where the arm touches.

Children then unfold their paper figures. They write a spelling word on one and its base word on the other. Small groups might enjoy making a friendship chain by taping all their paper people together.
