Do not forget to practice some dictation with children once they are done playing the game. In my experience children typically record just one of the two blend sounds when spelling. For example, ‘skip’ is spelled sip; spat is spelled sat; stick is spelled sick etc. I try and stress on the consonant blend as much as possible when this happens.

There are times when children are just not eager to write. What I do is make them write on the small blackboard that I keep in the class which is perfect for their height.
