This activity is a mixture of Boggle and Scrabble!
The challenge is to see how many words you can find, using specific given letters.
It will cater for all levels of ability, as each child is using their own individual Spelling and vocabulary knowledge and ability.
Great activity for literacy groups.
There are 20 different boards. Instructions are on the front, so simply print and laminate. Store in plastic bag with recording sheets, or simply have students record in notebooks.
Ready to use!
There is a 12-letter word hidden on each of these cards, so the extra challenge is "Can you find this word?"
(I have included the answers!)
Children love the competitiveness of this activity if you wish to make it a competition! There are printable awards for winners.
I created this game to provide opportunities for students to practice looking, writing, reading and thinking about letters and possible combinations, and still have fun!
This game compels children to write words.
The keyboard appeals to most ages.
This works well as a Spelling/Language group activity, a homework or early finishers challenge.
Similar tasks to come, with shorter word challenges.
