A literacy focussed Interactive Whiteboard resource.  This resource is to be played at the IWB by students.  A common vowel combination is shown at the top of the screen and the student is challenged to make the longest word they can from the variety of letters shown on the given tiles. Non-scoring words such as those that do not contain the given vowels or are incorrect will result in points being taken away.  A four letter word will score 1, a five letter word 2, 6 letters will score 3 and  more than 6 will score 5.  Each game is timed with the time available  be set by the teacher.  There will always be at least a 4 letter word that is possible for each selection.

A high score facility has been suggested for some previous resources so has been incorporated into this resource for the current session.

This resource will take longer to load than others due to the size of the built in dictionary.  If any problems are found with the dictionary such as not recognising a common word please report it as well as any other errors you may encounter.  As ever the final error testing for this resource is in the hands of the users.

Note this resource is superceded by this IWB resource which has been created in response to the comments below.

  1. Just wondering if there is any way this can be adjusted so that it contains linguistic phonic sounds such as, ow, oe, oy, and double letter sounds such as; ss, ll, ff, rr. This would be perfect as an activity for children to work independently on after the lesson =)

  2. Rachel: Yes it can be adjusted – its not recieved a great deal of use relative to other resources on the site as it is so I’ve not pursued it too much. I’ll see if I can include some of your suggestions.

    Mrs W: I must also put a delete button in. The reason the letter selection is random is that if all letters are available students just enter the same word for each each letter every time. If the selection of letters varies they have to think more.

  3. Awww thanks alot!It would be a great resource that the whole school could then use, if you need any more ‘sounds’ let me know =) Thankyou!
