Activity game "spelling"

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm JOHN,

 

If you are looking for an activity game, I think I have the best one.

I work for a nursing and rehabilitation center in NJ, my residents are the higher function of the lowest stage.

Although they are little confused they always ask me to play spelling.

 

It's fun because they always want me to bring a dictionary with me.

So I make two teams, then I give a word to every team to spell it. if they don't spell it correct,

then the other team have the right to spell it, but if they are right they get the points.

 

I always take like one hour for spelling, and I also use words that they are familiar with.

After we are done, I give them a nice cup of coffee and some cookies to recover energies.

 

Have fun...

 

Truly, JOHN

Hi John,

 

I am putting some last minute touches on my March Calendar today and I think that I will add a Spelling Contest into those slots that I need to fill. Thank you for the inspiration. It sounds like your enthusiasm is a big part of what has made that activity so fun for you and for your residents.

 

Thanks Again,

Imzoop

I also have to admire your enthusiasm John, you sound like you do a wonderful job.

 

I also used to use this activity with my residents who were in the early stages of Alzheimer's and they really enjoyed it. I I was just wondering if you use the Spelling Bee Book from Nasco. It is only $10.00 and the words are arranged alphabetically and are grouped by difficulty. Of course it is just as easy to make up the words or find words on the internet but I found this book really helpful.

 

Also, what my residents now like to do is make up smaller words out a big word that I put up on a dry erase board. This might also be something to try depending on your residents' abilities, if you are looking for something new.

Take care!

Hi, my residents love spelling as well.

I add a spelling spot in my exercise class. When we are doing range of motion with the arms, I say "OK cheerleaders what word can we spell today that makes us feel happy?" They pick a word and we spell it together while our arms extend out and back. The question or prompt can change. It brings a smile to their faces and adds something unexpected to the exercise routine.
