Fun with Words provides activities which pupils will enjoy doing and that will make learning about words fun. By playing with words, children will not only extend their vocabularies, improve their spelling and develop their language skills; they will also come to understand the etymology and morphology of words: where they come from, how they work and how they can be used. Children are encouraged to solve and create riddles and to experiment with words in a variety of wordplay activities, such as playing with words, discovering anagrams and exploring jokes based on homophones. The activities can be used with either individuals or groups.
