Syllables Millionaire is a great PowerPoint game in the style of ‘Who wants to be a Millionaire’, including embedded sound. Focuses on the use of syllables as a spelling aid – with graduated questions. The PPT file can easily be edited and used to check learning at the end of any literacy or numeracy topic that lends itself to a quiz format.
