Say "Porcupine!" for the Spelling Word

Have students play as a class or in groups. One student in a group is "It" and leaves the room. The other players make up a sentence with a spelling word that gives a clue to the word. When "It" returns, a player says the sentence but substitutes porcupine for the spelling word, as in "Our 'porcupine' contains the Bill of Rights," where porcupine stands for Constitution. If "It" guesses the word and spells it correctly, then he or she chooses a new "It." If not, that player tries again.
