My friend Kyle asked me to code a way for his son to practice spelling words. Clearly the answer is always a spreadsheet. Enter spelling words onto this spreadsheet and use the Add-On menu (Kyle spells) to practice spelling words.
How it Works
List spelling words in column A.
Write a sentence that defines the spelling word without using the word in column B.
Write a sentence that includes the spelling word in context in column C.
Click on “Next Word” in the sidebar to generate a random word from the spelling list. The sentence for the spelling word will appear and the yellow cell D4 will be cleared to allow you to enter the next spelling word. Click on “Check” in the sidebar to check the spelling.
The “Reset” button in the sidebar deletes the practice page and returns you to the spelling list.
Suggestion to create a copy of the template and to delete the default spelling words. Rename the spreadsheet. Suggestion to not provide the spelling words and sentences to the students. Attach in Google Classroom as “Make a copy for each student.” Have the student type in the spelling words into column A and write the sentences for columns B and C. The student can then practice their words right in the spreadsheet.
