Spelling Question and Answer Game

Write Spelling Word on board behind student. The class and the student have a copy of the spelling list as a reference. The standing student who is guessing asks questions of the class—does it start with a “n” or does it rhyme with “fall” or does it end with a “t”? Members of the class are called on to answer these questions. Once the student standing knows which spelling word, the student must flip over the list and spell it from memory.
