Freya and Seb have finally caught on to the trend of fidget spinners! #affiliate We found some great ones on Amazon that didn’t break the bank (around £3) and came quickly.

Seb especially has loved this challenge – he has read his tricky words at least 8 times today!!  I need to make him a harder challenge!

These printables are so easy to use.  I just printed them and laminated them (so they last longer) and then we were ready to go!

Set the spinner spinning placing it on the image top right of this printable and the child has to complete the challenge before the spinner stops.  Lots of options:

How many words can they read?
How many words can they find (adult calls out word)
How many words can they write – CORRECTLY?

I am certain that you will have plenty more great ideas too!

These are the printables available:

Phase 2 and 3 tricky words.

Phase 4 and 5 tricky words.

Year 3 common exception words (part 1)

Blank fidget Spinner template – I have also added a blank one so you can choose your own challenges.
