Word Scrambles. Unscramble the letters and you will spell some of the words in recent lessons:

Or pots, post, opts, tops, spot

Or quiet

Teaching Notes.

  1. Word Scrambles again get students looking carefully for and at words from the current lessons. They can also help students develop a better sense of the normal patterns of consonants and vowels in English words. For instance, in this Scrambles they could recognize that <lk>, <kw>, <wk> and the like are not likely opening strings in the word they are trying to unscramble. In enough they can begin to see that <gh> is a common combination. In time working Scrambles can help them see such things as the fact that many words end in silent final <e> and that <y> tends to be either at the beginning or the end. All such things are part of the wide realm of tactical information that good spellers should have.
