What Letter is Missing?

20 min2 participants

Write words. Develop vocabulary and word understanding through identification and replacement of missing letters.

Let's play!

  1. Player 1 : Think of a word and find the letters to write the word on the base plate.

  2. Player 1 : Remove a letter and place it in the bowl with 3 other letters you choose.

  3. Player 2 : Read the letters and decide which letter is missing.

  4. Player 2 : Find the missing letter in the bowl and fill in the word.

  5. Player 2 : Read the word.

How to prepare

  • 1 base plate

  • Letter bricks

  • 1 bowl

Give the letter bricks to Player 1.

Facilitation tips

  • Ask “What was your strategy for the activity?”.

  • Ask “What happens if your words are not the same?”.

  • Additional letters can be pre-arranged in alphabetical order on an additional base plate. Could be a warm-up activity!

Possible variations

  • Change the number of bricks in the bowl.

  • Change the number of letters removed.

  • Change word length.
