Literacy Basics: Spelling

Author rank 432
Author: Jan Bond at Yacapaca

These quizzes reinforce the exercises in the Chalkface Literacy Basics worksheets Pack 1 and Pack 3. There is a direct correspondence between the quizzes and the page numbers in each pack. 

There are 10 questions per quiz. They use a rich variety of different question types to maintain interest, and every question includes formative feedback. 

To get the most out of these quizzes:

  • use them in conjunction with the worksheets, either beforehand as diagnostics, or afterwards as reinforcement. 
  • for reinforcement, allow 2-3 attempts per quiz, but not more.
  • for diagnostic use, allow only one attempt per quiz.
  • when assigning to a whole class, use the Teams feature to encourage competition.

The Wordles quiz covers 20 of the 32 topics and can be used for general reinforcement. It is not suitable as a general diagnostic, because its highly visual nature would skew the results. The Wordles themselves were created on wordle.net.

Wordles (20)
This is an exercise in spotting mis-spelled words hidden in "Wordles", which are word-pictures. It will help you to develop your intuition about right and wrong spelling. If you take the quiz several times, you will notice that different pictures pop up each time. Good luck, and enjoy - it's fun!
