After picking up the discs, the player looks at the word and tries to spell it. If the word starts with the same letter as the players own character, then the player can feed it to the character for 1 point. However, if the word doesn’t start with the same letter, the player must return the word. At this point, feel free to scramble the words again.
Since the correct spellings are taped to the back of each character, other players can say if the spelling is right or wrong. If spelling the words is too challenging, the teacher can hold up flashcards to help practice the letters. On the other hand, if spelling the words is too easy, have students use each word in a sentence. e.g. I like ants./I don’t like ants. You can use any structure suitable for your students!
