Silent Spelling


This is a quick little game which I was taught on a Brownie leaders’ training course!  It works well for Year 11 students as they tend to know each other well and are quite comfortable with each other.  Students must form teams of equal numbers and stand in line, one behind the other.  Show the student at the back of the line a word.  They must then spell this out, using their finger, letter by letter, on the back of the student in front.  This student then spells the letter on the back of the student in front of them etc.  The student at the front of the line writes down the letters.  I give each team a different word to prevent cheating!  As it’s so quick to set up, it can be done as a five minute warm up to revise some key words on a topic.
