Word Detective is a FUN way to get kids excited about words.
Assign any word and ask students to make words from the letters in that particular word. Example: Halloween... Words created could include... all, neon and many more.
Points are awarded for each word created. Longer words score more points. Kids use math addition/multiplication equations to find point totals.
Kids also analyze why some words are easier to work with than others. Conversations include "not enough vowels," "unpopular letters," etc.
This game is perfect for partners and a class challenge. Kids willingly grab dictionaries to double-check word spellings. This activity can be used over and over again all year long. "The more they practice...the better they get!"
