Skulz word game – build the board

Numeracy into literacy

I made this alphabet resourceem0-2 to reinforce spelling in a Year 8 unit on digital media.

I randomly distributed the letters to the Year 8s and gave them a vocabulary list. Their job was to mingle amongst themselves until they could spell a word on the list.

More recently, my Year 7 and 9 students played more traditional Scrabble-like games on desks. However, as the board expands as needed using the emoticons as spaces, it might be easier to play this on the floor.

I introduce the concept of letter values by asking students to add up the value of their own names using the table provided.
