Listing Detail Tabs

Skilled readers recognise patterns in words rather than sounding words out, letter by letter. Students need to be taught how to use these spelling patterns (also known as phonograms, rimes, or chunks) to spell and read new words.

These ‘Teaching Timesavers’ is loosely based on the well-known game ‘BOGGLE’ and provide students with lots of opportunities to practise this important skill.

This resource, which will be emailed to you as a .pdf file, contains 60 ‘BOGGLE BOARDS’ and recording sheets!

Each A4 page features one particular rime. I have sorted out the onsets that go with each chunk and these are the only letters students can choose from – narrowing down the chance of random combinations that aren’t really words!

Kids love this activity and it works well in a variety of situations.

It is a great addition to your Independent Activities, as all the BOGGLE BOARDS follow the same format. - once a student has completed one, they will be able to work on the others independently.

It is also a great small group activity as part of the Reading programme, when linked to a current reader.

They also make great 'warm up' activities for the class.

You can also make it a little competitive, as students score points depending on the number and length of the words they make.

Working with Word Families helps children make connections in both Reading and Writing. It is essential for success in literacy.
