An Interactive Whiteboard Resource to allow quick spelling based games. Similar to the puzzles found in many newspapers a nine letter word has each of its letters randomly put into each circle. If you follow the rules of the newspaper variants the challenge is to make as many words of 4+ letters as you can always using the centre letter. You can come up with your own scoring method but one method is to give 1 point for a 4 letter word, 2 for 5 letters etc. If students find the nine letter word they get 10 points. There is a built in 3 minute timer which slowly colours in red as the time elapses. A buzzer marks time up. Or you may prefer to not user a timer.
