Here’s a great “Back to School” icebreaker and get-acquainted learning activity for partners or small groups! How many words can your students make when they scramble the letters in Back to School Time? This puzzle activity will provide lots of discussion and competition for the most words, the longest words, and the most unusual words. Students use problem solving skills, spelling, and vocabulary skills when they work out their letter combinations. 7-page puzzle packet includes notes to the teacher, the puzzle activity page, a master for letter tiles, a procedure chart for Letter Scramble Puzzles, and a comprehensive KEY to the puzzle. One of the best features of this puzzle activity is that everyone is successful! The activity can even be repeated. Students will find more words, especially as they become adept at seeing transformations. Letter Scrambles are also great activities for a Language Arts Center. Students can work alone or with a partner. Grades 4-8
