How It Works:
There are a variety of tasks you can complete with these magnetic letters and magnetic whiteboards...!
1- You can simply ask students to make as many keywords as they can using the letters- splitting the letters equally allows you to create a challenge/team work/cooperative learning
Students can be creative with their words- by making crosswords, acrostics and link words together.
2- As they are placing the magnets on whiteboards- students can then add in letters using a whiteboard pen?
3- When the students have finished- they can hold up their whiteboard and present to the class-
- 1 person to state the word
- 1 person to then explain the word
- 1 person to give an example using the word
If you would like to borrow the letters/whiteboards- Ask Mr Ali.
