Can you spell something?

TES Resources user miss boom has shared an engaging spelling exercise based on the mobile app Draw Something.

What is it?

Pupils watch a picture being drawn on the board and try to guess what it is. They must unscramble the anagram to decipher the image.

Key stage 2 pupils.

Why it is useful?

A short and creative activity, it helps pupils develop confidence in spelling challenging words. It provides a lively start to any lesson and a more exciting alternative to a normal spelling test.
