How many letters making words game
Make colour photocopies and cut up the cards. Students ask about how many of one of the letters you have (with “How many As are there?”, etc), then how many of those have one particular colour (with “How many red As are there?”, etc), then are given that many letters and score that many points. As well as taking turns asking such questions, they can also have extra goes and so maybe score more points if they can make words from the letters that they have been given. If they have many unsuccessful requests for letters because they guess the wrong colour etc, then tell them that all of them are only yellow, blue, red and green and/ or quickly let them look at an un-cut-up copy of the worksheet.
To link to the next unit of Lift Off 1/ Take Off 1, you could then play the same game with “May I have three blue Es, please?”
How many letters hangman
Say a word that they have recently studied or will study soon such as one of the words below. Students try to complete the spelling of the word by asking “How many As/ Bs/ Cs/…s are there?”, with one point for each letter you then add to the word on the board, e.g. two points if they ask “How many Es are there?” and there are two. They can also ask similar questions like “How many letters are there?” (in which case you can write dashes on the board as in hangman), but they only get points for guessing specific letters.
Students can then play the same game in groups, perhaps by randomly choosing which number word below their partner will ask them to spell.
