iPad Spelling Freebie

So much Pinterest little time!   I found this fun idea from
Traci at Dragonflies in First for iphone spelling and LOVED IT!

The students write their spelling words in the fields at the top of the "phone" and then "text" them.
These were made three to a page so I printed & laminated them and then started thinking that I sure would love to have them bigger like an iPad so the keys would be bigger and they could write all 10 words at the top.  I have an iPad that I use a lot in class so my students are familiar with it, although none of my students own one.  So, the wheels started turning and I spent some time this morning coming up with this:

It really turned out to be more of an iPhone/iPad hybrid but my kiddos will never know!  Now they can practice all 10 words and have more space.  If you want it, just click on the photo to download it!


  1. My kiddos are going to love this! We practice our spelling words with a pretend typewriter and they go nuts! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi Cindy!
    I absolutely love your blog! What program do you use to create these great templates? I love the formatting and clip art but have no idea where to even begin. I create a lot of boring things in word and would love to jazz it up a bit. :) Thanks!

  4. Very cute! Thanks for sharing. I use my iPad a lot in class as well.

  5. Thank you for your nice comments! LBJ - I use Microsoft Publisher for everything I make. I have used it for so many years that I feel like I can do almost anything on it. There are many sources for great clip art, Teacher's Notebook just opened up a clip art section:
    and there is always Lettering Delights and PC Crafter.

  6. This is brilliant! I am addicted to all things Apple and I have passed that addiction on to my 5 year old! This is wonderful and I WILL be using this! :)

  7. I just found this on Pinterst. Love it! I will be using this with my class. I think it will also be great to practice our CVC words. :)

  8. My little ones will love this. I'm so happy to find another Florida teacher blog. Thanks again for the freebie.

  9. I am going to use this for my son's at-home spelling practice. Great tool! Thanks for sharing!!

  10. Thanks for posting a pic of my iphones! Would you mind adding a link back to my site where I originally posted them? iPhone Freebie
    or one of the Pinterest pins? :)

    Love your ipad idea. That is REALLY great for those fingers that struggle with the smaller "buttons".
