This activity was created as a quick transition game for teachers to use in class. You can simply display one of the slides to the class and set a timer to give your students a finite amount of time to complete the activity.
They need to use the letters presented to create the longest word possible. You could even challenge students to use the word in a sentence, which gives you the opportunity to assess understanding, particularly if they’ve used a homophone.
For younger students, you might want to stretch it out to 3 minutes whereas older students might have only 1 or 2 minutes to complete the challenge.
This activity is fantastic for online learning or remote learning as well. It’s perfect for all classroom teachers, including casual relief and specialist teachers.
