Upon entering my classroom, students would often head straight to the “wordplay of the day” section of the room, where I had warmups to jumpstart our thinking. They loved the challenge of solving word puzzles, codes, palindromes, and especially anagrams. What is an anagram? It is a word (or phrase) that is made by rearranging the letters. For example, face can be rearranged to form the word cafe.
They see is an anagram of the eyes.
The following Anagram Concentration Game will introduce your children to anagrams in addition to reinforcing memory, concentration, and spatial reasoning. Even better, challenge your children to create their own anagram words, phrases, puzzles, and games.
