BFG Alphabetical Order Activity

I created these resources whilst reading The BFG by Roald with my Year 3 class. The task is for the children to put some of the BFG’s nonsense words into their very own dictionary. The children can cut out and stick the words in order alphabetically then make up their own meanings for the words. In this pack, there are several different worksheets aimed at different ability groups. Some have more words and some have the alphabet included at the top of the page as support. Also, included in this pack is a worksheet where the meanings of some words are given and the children have to match the definition to the nonsense word. My Year 3 class really enjoyed making up their own definitions.
