Polysyllabic words game

Submitted by Kathy Crockford on Mon, 2013-09-30 20:00

Literacy: Ww/L1.1, Syllables, Ww/L2.1

General: Dyslexia support

Level: L1, L2

Resource type: Sort or match cards

This is a game to form new words using syllables.All these words have three parts to them and multiple words can be made using different parts in different order

I have used this with L1 and L2 learners and they love it. I let them work in groups – no more than 5 otherwise it gets a bit too busy and confusing.

You may need to have pre-taught some common prefixes and suffixes and rules; how prefixes never change the spelling of the root word they join, etc..

Skills tested include accuracy of reading data, ordering positive and negative numbers, calculating the mean and range of data including negative numbers.

There is a tricky anagram to finish off the worksheet, which will appeal to some leaners who like puzzles and wordskills.

The chart could be used separately and many other questions devised from the information it contains.
