Challenge your friends to see how long a list they can make.

Game 3: Word-loop

  3. Sometimes small words may be found within bigger ones.

Game 4: Time Trials

  1. The challenge is: How many 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 syllable words, beginning with …, can you write down in 60 seconds:
  2. No dictionaries may be used. Break up into smaller groups to check each other’s words.
  3. Keep score, giving values to the words according to syllables / length.

Game 5: Scrambled Eggs

Just as all things are connected in this world, letters can be connected in so many different ways. Below are a bunch of eggs with a letter on each one. See how many words you can scramble up; but no jumping over the eggs!


'CH' 'NCH' 'TCH'
'ch' follows a long vowel 'nch' follows a short vowel 'tch' follows a short vowel
church pinch thatch
church pinch thatch
inch hatchet

You must add to the list!

LO 6

LANGUAGE STRUCTURE AND USE The learner will know and be able to use the sounds, words and grammar of the language to create and interpret texts.

We know this when the learner:

6.1 works with words:

6.1.1 uses prefixes, stems and suffixes/extensions to form words;

6.1.3 records words in a personal dictionary;

6.1.4 uses phonics and spelling rules to spell words correctly;

6.2 works with sentences:

6.2.3 identifies and uses nouns, pronouns, prepositions, articles and conjunctions;

6.2.6 consolidates use of punctuation learned so far.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
