A student rolls a (large) dice and calls the number. “Four!” The teacher, out of direct sight of the students, takes a paper clip and pencil or chopstick and spins the clip around the pencil point in the ‘farm’ spinner and calls out the word it stops on: “donkey”, if the word has already been called, then spin again or cheat. Students ALWAYS start writing in the top left hand corner of their scorecard and the target is to get 5 in a row correct spellings. If they make a spelling mistake they move one place down the left hand column and start a new row. They have 7 lives though sometimes I move onto 4 in a row or less until everyone loses their 7 lives or successfully completes the challenge; it depends on the atmosphere of the class.
