Words and Space

25 min2 participants

Development of the concept of leaving spaces between words through identification and separation of words.

Let's play!

  1. Player 1 : Write a row of words across the top of the base plate without leaving spaces between the words.

  2. Player 2 : Read the letters.

  3. Player 2 : Identify words from left to right.

  4. Player 2 : Remove each word and place them in a column under the row of bricks.

  5. Both players : Compare and discuss the words.

How to prepare

  • 1 base plate

  • Letter bricks

Give the base plate to Player 1.

Facilitation tips

  • Arrange several of each letter in alphabetical order on an additional storage base plate for ease in finding letters. This can be prepared in advance or a warm-up activity for the child.

  • Ask "What was your strategy to manipulate bricks, displace words and reposition them?"

Possible variations

  • Suggest mandatory letters.

  • Specify words must be verbs, nouns, adjectives, relative to current lessons

  • Change the length/number of rows.

  • Find the 3rd word, the 2nd letter of the 4th word…
