I've Finished

"If you finish the exam early here is what you have to do.  You have to find a word in the table (above) that equals exactly 25 points / 50 points and 100 points.  For example the word SEA: S = 19 E = 5 A = 1 (25 Points).  It's not an easy activity but its good for your brain for as well as thinking about English words you are counting too.  If you find a word you join the respective 25 / 50 / 100 club.

This activity worked very well with 9-13 year olds.  The look of enduring delight on Andrea's face when she found TELEPHONE (100 Points) was tremendous.  Reward in itself.
