Throughout the month of December, we will be working with our new family devotional “Journey Through the Nativity”. I like to combine subjects whenever possible so I have decided to have our second grader have his spelling words come from the actual Bible lessons that he’s working with. Some words will be repeated as they come up a lot and I thought that it was important to make sure that they are in his long term memory.
Click on the picture below to print out the Spelling Lists for the entire devotional.
We will also be completing different activities each day in order for him to practice the words.

Mondays - writing the words in cursive
- He will write each word, in cursive, on these cute Christmas cards
- These cards will be used for the ABC order on Wednesday

Tuesdays - clothespin spelling
- I found a really cute Christmas card garland, at the Dollar Tree, that had clothespins in order to hang Christmas cards. I thought that it would be perfect for spelling. It looks like this one.
- I will hang the garland up at a height that he will be able to reach the clothespins easily.
- He will use these cute Christmas letters in order to spell all of the spelling words, hanging letters on the clothespins in the correct order.
