Drag.Drop.Spell - Animals.Colours.Numbers

© R. Mirshahi


  • In this exercise, students are expected to use the clues to spell words. Drag and drop the letters in appropriate boxes to spell the words correctly. Students can spell the words forward, backward, or in any way they like. They do not even have to spell the whole word before they move on. Students can even skip a word completely without losing a point. Students get a point for every letter they correctly spell and lose a point for any misplaced letter. They can attempt as many times as they wish to spell the word correctly. This game allows the students to focus on any part of the word (e.g., initial or ending sounds or any other letter clusters). The words are supported with clues (e.g., descriptions, graphics and animations).
