Introduction: Rainbow Writing: Spelling Practice

About: I am a teacher, and I hope to use the instructables platform to provide instructions to help students learn and grow.

Rainbow Writing is a fun way to practice your spelling words. This instructable will show you how.

Step 1: Supplies

You will need:

  • A pencil or pen
  • A sheet of paper (because your bedroom wall will make people angry)
  • Your 3 favorite colors of crayon, marker, or colored pencil

Step 2:

Say the word. Write the word in pen or pencil. Say each letter out loud as you write it. Then, say the word again.


Say: "Liked, L-I-K-E-D, Liked" as you write.

Step 3:

Say the word. Trace over the word with a crayon. Say each letter out loud as you trace it. Then, say the word again.

Step 4:

Repeat Step 3 with your other two favorite crayons.

Step 5: Wait a Minute!

Wait a minute I did something wrong! Can you see what it is? I used an uppercase letter "L." Liked isn't a proper noun and it's not at the beginning of a sentence. Be careful to use the correct case when you practice, so your teacher doesn't mark it wrong on your test.
