This is a fantastic resource I made for improving spelling during morning activities. The words are taken from the year 3 and 4 word list. There are 20 different 7 letter words which are placed in a wheel. One of the letters is put in the middle, which has to be used in every word. Pupils then try to make 3 letter or more words.
I score it by allowing the pupils 5 minutes to find words. They get 7 points for the 7 letter word and 6 points for 6 letter words etc. Pupils read their word out and if no one else has got it they get the points. Everyone who gets the 7 letter word gets 7 points, even if someone else gets it too. Each slide has a clue what the 7 letter word is. The next slide always reveals what the 9 letter word is.
