Climb the Mast 
(oral/auditory)

Ask students to work in threes: two players and a caller. They will need a long stick for the "mast." Explain the following rules:

The caller says a spelling word.
If Player 1 spells it correctly, he or she grabs the mast bottom with one hand.
If Player 2 spells the next word correctly, he or she grabs the mast just above Player 1's hand.
As players spell words, they move their hands up the mast. If they misspell a word, they cannot move.
The player who reaches the top of the mast first wins.
