Free Parent Involvement Activity – "Anagrams" – Grades K – 3rd

Cut out the individual letters of a word, mix them up, and lay them out before your child. Encourage him to unscramble the letters and reform the word. Start out with simple, three-letter words for younger children, and work up to longer ones for older kids. For example:

E P T

becomes

P E T

Keep in mind that some anagrams can form a variety of words. For example:

O P S T

can become

P O T S

S T O P

T O P S

P O S T

S P O T

To help your child begin to see pattens more quickly in puzzles like these, always present him with anagrams in which the letters are arranged in alphabetical order.
