3rd Grade Challenge Spelling Words Games for Children 

The best way to practice spelling words for 3rd grade is learning through enthralling games. 

Here are some games that you can enjoy playing with your little ones at home while enhancing their knowledge of spellings:

  1. Find the Right One
  2. For every word, make a few spelling cards out of which only one is correct. 

    For example, make spellings cards of the word “celebrate” as celebrate, kelebrate, calebrate and calabrate.

    Now speak the word “Celebrate”

    Kids have to find and pick out the correct spelling card. 

  3. The Tree of Words
  4. In this game, children will draw a tree and color it. 

    Next, they have to stick words to the branches of the tree. Remember, each branch can have only one word. 

    You will speak out words, and they will write those words on different pieces of paper. The words that they have correctly spelt will make it to the branches of the tree. 

    The kid who is able to stick words to the most number of branches will win. 

  5. Look Around and Win!
  6. This can be a brilliant game idea to encourage children to learn more and more spellings. 

    All you have to do is to ask kids to look around, identify objects and write their spellings on a colorful chart with crayons or sketch pens.

    For example, if they see a chair, a vase, a television, etc. around them, they will write “chair, vase, television,…” in their sheets. 

    The kid who is able to write down the maximum number of things as well as their correct spellings will win the game.

  7. Word in Sand
  8. In this wonderful spelling learning game, you will have to speak 3rd-grade words and ask children to practice those words by writing them not on paper or board but on the sand with sticks. 

    When kids write words on the sand with sticks, they will enjoy learning the spellings of different words as they would feel like they are playing. 

  9. Shape it with Clay
  10. To play this game, children will require clay. 

    Playing with clay is so much fun for children as they can mold the clay in different shapes. 

    In this game also, kids will have to shape the clay into different alphabets. 

    You will speak out a word, say castle.

    Kids will have to make the alphabets ‘c’, ‘a’, ‘s’, ‘t’, ‘l’ and ‘e’ with clay.

    The one who is able to shape the clay and also spell the word correctly in the least amount of time will be the winner!
