You will need:
- The Scrabble letters work sheet (kindly donated by TST) found here –> Scrabble
- Learning objectives or key words delivered throughout the lesson- obviously!
How it work:
As a plenary activity, show the pupils the scrabble letter values from the attached document and ask them create the highest value word based on a key word from the lesson. The higher the value, the better the word!
Alternatively, as the sheet suggests, ask pupils to find the value of a key word in the learning objectives!
Fantastic way to get pupils thinking and engaged as well as using numeracy in the classroom!
-Tell the pupils the VALUE of the word you want them to find- makes life trickier for the pupils!
-USE AS A STARTER- Get pupils to find a word from last lesson using the tiles!
-Limit the number of tiles someone can use (in scrabble, the maximum you can have is 7)
-Keep a running tally of scores if you do this regularly! Pupils will love a competition!
Thank you TST for sharing this idea!
