The Play: This game is played like "Duck, Duck, Goose." The students all sit in a big circle. The teacher picks a student and gives them a speling word.

When the student spells the entire word, this means "goose" and the tapped student must chase the other student around the circle and sit back in his spot. If tagged, the "goose" student must sit in the center for one turn.
