Spelling Game

The group, if numbering 40 or more pupils, is divided into two teams.

The contestants of each team are given a different letter of the

alphabet. The teacher gives a word. Thereupon the pupils in both teams

whose letter occurs in the word named, run one to the front and one to

the rear of the room, as assigned by the teacher, and take their places

in the order in which their letter occurs in the word. When the pupils

have taken their proper position, they call out the letters they

represent, spelling the word. The group first accomplishing this, wins

one point for their team. If the letter occurs twice in the same word,

that pupil representing that letter takes his place where the letter

first occurs in the word and shifts to the second position, so as to

help complete the word.

If the group be too small for two alphabets the game can be played by

having but one and seeing which of the various words given is formed in

the quickest time by the single group.
