Spelling Battleship


Directions: This is a two player game. Each player needs a battleship game board and a spelling list they are working on (it needs to be the same list for both students). They need to sit across from each other with a shield between them. Before playing each student needs to fill in one side of the game board with six of their spelling words going across (one letter per box). When they are finished filling it in play begins. The first player needs to guess a coordinate such a (1,A) and the other student has to tell them if they hit a letter or not. If it's a miss they need to mark it on the other board to keep track of what they have called. If they hit a letter, they can keep playing until they miss or guess the word. The student needs to say... you sunk my and then the word they have sunk. When a word is sunk they need to mark it off on their list. When all the letters in a word have been hit, that word has sunk. They take turns playing until all words on one board are sunk. The first player to sink all the words wins.

  7. I clicked on the game board, but it is your example. It did not bring up a blank copy. Can you email a copy to me at alihelline@yahoo.com?

  10. great spelling game. My kids are always excited when I say we have time for a spelling game. They want to play battleship. I made my own version of the gameboard a few years ago with a spot on the side for the current list to be typed.
