Have you ever used dry beans in an educational activity?
We’ve used them as math counters, used them in art, and even used them as the base of a sensory bin.
That inexpensive bag of beans has been used a lot. Plus, they’ll last forever.
Now, we’re using them to practice our spelling words.

How to set-up:
Pour your dry beans in a small container and provide an open table for creating.
That’s it for the set-up. Easy, isn’t it?
Using the spelling list for reference, have your child spell out each of their words.
This, obviously, takes a lot longer time than just writing the words. But, it gives your child a chance to really study their list.
Hopefully, this is a nice and relaxing way to study. Your fingers are creating, your fine motor skills are getting a work-out, and you’re concentrating on the words one letter at a time.
It’s a nice change from practice tests!
