I hope you have enjoyed exploring so far this week.
Below are the learning activities for today.
|Learning Objective/Focus:||Make a word chain|
|Main input||Word chains are where you start with a word and change one letter to make a new word. E.g. start with chip. Change 1 letter to make a new word. E.g. chin—then shin- then spin etc.|
|Activities||Start with a 4 letter word. Try to change each letter at least once, but challenge yourself to see how long you can make the chain. Write them as a list to help you keep count of all the new words you have made. Here are some suggested words to start: Spot, cats, dogs, four.|
|Explore a range of your own starting words. |
Find out what happens when you start with 3 letter words. Is the chain longer?
|Challenge yourself with 5 letter words. E.g. frame, place, scope, grass. Try some of your own.|
|Extension Activity Ideas||Write down your full name and use the letters to make smaller words.|
|Learning Objective/Focus:||Make word problems for given calculations|
