I played this game with all the groups and they loved it. Good brain boosting exercises.
Thank you Golden Careers for your amazing sites.
But please try to add more videos related activities eg: "Do you Hear what I hear" sound exercises.
Thank you

can you go diagonally? like for the letters BACK?
Solange 16th Jul 2018 Diversional Therapist
Hi Beatrice, yes, you can go any way you want as long as every word contains the middle letter (in any position). Do not repeat any letters!
For instance: Take the letter 'L': Lad, lace, lack, led, let
Take the letter 'P': Place, pal, pea, pat, pace.
Take the letter 'A': Ace, Ape, At, Able, Ale.
It is a good brain game that eventually becomes very popular.
