is a fantastic word game!
Similar to Scrabble, but played without a board, players make as many words as they can with their letter tiles.
Recently I used it to reinforce my 9-year old’s spelling lessons.
It is easy to build words in spelling families – just add letters, swap letters, make new words, find root words … the possibilities are endless!
Quick, fun, tactile, kinesthetic and visual – every learning sense is used to play and learn spelling.
We enjoy a variety of other spelling activities:
- write words on a white tile/ whiteboard
- Spelling City – fantastic free site with auditory and visual lessons, games and tests
- spell aloud while jumping on a mini trampoline or skipping rope
