The sheets have fun activities in the following areas: anagrams; palindromes; mnemonics; acronyms; alliteration; vowels; pangrams; lipograms; riddles; word builders; word squares; word searches; and much more. Both sections focus on extending students’ vocabulary and arousing an interest in the formation and use of words. These sheets are ideal for language and enrichment.
