Fun Idea for Practicing Spelling Words

I was on Amazon.com earlier today looking for a few birthday presents for my cousins, and I happened to find Melissa and Doug's Travel Hangman.

I think this is really cool because A) you can't lose the letters or person pieces- they are attached to the board and you just flip them over and B) there is a small dry erase board at the bottom.  Sure, you can just use a piece of paper and play hangman, but this will help to reduce the amount of paper used and I think kids would love using it to practice their spelling words.  It is $10.61 on Amazon's site if anyone is interested.

Note: I am not being compensated in any way for this review - I just thought it was neat and wanted to share.  :)

These are great for centers, too! I have 2 that the children use, with a partner, to practice spelling word wall words!
