Anagrams Activity

Anagrams are pairs or groups of words that use exactly the same letters in different order, for example: pills/spill and eat/tea.

Directions

  1. The following games are fun ways to play with anagrams. They may be tough for beginning readers, but independent readers will enjoy them.
  2. Grab a pencil and paper and brainstorm a list of anagrams with your child.
  3. Write a list of words on a sheet of paper. Challenge your child to write an anagram for each. Or if you like, list the words and their anagrams in two separate columns and in different order, then ask your child to match the anagrams by drawing a line between each pair. Here are some anagrams to get you started: lemon/melon, rats/star, cloud/could, flow/wolf, dice/iced, race/care, bread/beard, but/tub, stop/post, step/pest.
  4. After playing with anagrams a bit, you'll enjoy making up anagram riddles like Q: What do you call a bothersome thing on the stairs? A: A step pest.
