Halloween Spelling Fun

I've talked about Kerpoof before but came across Spell a Picture again this morning and realized they are have a super cute Halloween background that would be fun to use this time of year.   

In this activity students can choose a background for their picture (choosing from graveyard, empty room, beach, farm, nighttime, restaurant, and spotlight) and use the letters at the bottom of the screen to practice spelling words.  The neat thing about this game, and what sets it apart from other spelling games is that as they spell, pictures pop up on the screen that begin with those letters.  As they continue spelling, the game narrows the pictures down to the one word that a student has spelled- with new pics appearing and disappearing.  

In this picture I started to type the letters CAN and here's what popped up:

Such a fun way to practice spelling!
