Construct a Word – Build Vocabulary and Spelling Skills

Construct a Word is a good online activity for elementary school students to use to develop their vocabulary and their spelling skills. Construct a Word, produced by Read Write Think, asks students to select the ending (not necessarily a suffix) for a word. After selecting an ending, students have to select from a bank of letters and letter combinations to form a word. Construct a Word tells students how many words can be formed from the letters available to them. When a student has created all of the words possible from the available letters, he or she moves on to a new new bank of endings and letters.

Here are some screenshots of Construct a Word.
