Magic Spelling

Hi Friends!  I have something fun to share with you!  A while back I posted about making crayon cakes.  Click here to read that post!  I use these for lots of things in my room.  One of my favorites is "Magic Spelling".  When we do this spelling activity, the kids use crayon cakes to completely cover one side of a paper.  We flip it over and write our spelling words on the back.  The pencil pushes the crayon onto a paper below and the words "magically" appear in rainbow color.  The kids always LOVE this spelling station.  I just used some cute clip art from Krista Wallden at Creative Clips to make a really fun spelling worksheet.  Click here to download my magic spelling worksheet!

*Due to many requests, I have updated the spelling worksheet to also include pages for 15 and 20 words!

Front Side 
Back Side

These pages should be folded in half.  One half of the back gets colored.  There are small stop signs to remind kids not to color on the other half.  The thicker the crayon, the better the results.  When they are finished coloring, they write their words on the front.  My kids often write their words and then trace them a few times to make them appear even darker.  I love that they are writing their words again and again without me asking them to!  Tricky teaching!  LOVE IT!

Step 1 - COLOR!

Step 2 - Write your spelling words!

Step 3 - Open to reveal the MAGIC!
This is a really fun spelling activity.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  Have a "magical" week!

I really want this 20 word list but can not for the life of me figure out how to get it? It doesn't seem available on this page to download and it isn't in TPT. Would you please tell me how to get this? kcohen@methacton.org Thank you!
