  3. You can have students report back on the words they made to a ‘vocabulary bank’, which is contributed by the entire class.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Easy: Have any word length ok.
  • Difficult: Words containing 3+ letters OR all words must contain the middle letter in the grid .
  • Phonics: Students can have any combination as long as they can pronounce it!
