Witch’s Silent Spelling Spell

For this activity you will need: a whiteboard

One child is selected to go to the front of the class. They have been put under a witch’s spell and have lost the ability to speak. The teacher shows this child a word (which could be Halloween related), and the child must spell out the word using only the actions for the letter sounds. The class responds by saying the sound related to the action, which the teacher can write on the whiteboard. When they have spelled out the whole word together, the spell is lifted and the child can talk again!

You could turn this into a competition by splitting the class into two groups, with two children put under a spell; whichever team works out the word first and lifts the spell wins!
