Jo-Anne's youngest child takes the credit for coming up with this fun word game, that can be enjoyed at a family meal, in the car, as a class activity and more. It develops spelling skills and encourages vocabulary building at the same time.


1. The person who goes first, announces the word ending and spelling that everyone must try to match with a word suggestion on their turn, for example -ight (night, right, sight, fight, light, flight).

2. The game proceeds in a clockwise direction with each person stating a word that ends in the suggested ending, in this case -ight.

3. When a participant can no longer think of a word at their turn, she or he is out.

4. The last person to suggest a word is the winner.

5. The spelling is more important than the sound, so weight could also be used for an -ight ending.

Really everyone wins at this game because it can be so much fun.

* Family tested and approved.
