How To Make Your Spelling Activities Fun With Emojis

Emoji Spelling Activities

Do you remember the Emoji movie? I never saw it, but I remember how popular emojis were. Around this time, I was making my first spelling activities as digital resources for my students. I started doing this pre-Covid when it was important to limit the amount of paper we used in our classroom. This was my solution and I thought it would be fun, but I had no idea how much fun making digital spelling activities for the classroom would be!

These are near and dear to my heart. They are the first types of digital resources that I began to offer on literacystations.com. I also found that my students never tired of using emojis for their spelling activities! It didn’t matter if it was September or May, my spelling station was always the most popular of all of my literacy stations because of these activities. 

What Are The Digital Spelling Activities?

These are available for you as Seesaw activities, as Boom Cards, or on Google Slides. Your students will open the assignment and move the emoji to the correct spelling of the word.

Yes! Because I always wanted a blend of traditional and digital resources, I’m including worksheets for spelling activities.
