What it means to really know a word

The diagram shows the different things we need to know about a word to really know it, and to be able to use it, but the letters are jumbled. Unjumble the letters to make words which explain what we need to know when we learn a new word.

Go to the next step to see the answers, and to learn more about what each term means. You can use the same activity (working out anagrams) with learners. It’s a useful way to revise spelling, or to recycle vocabulary. Would you like to use this activity in the class? Explain why, or why not in the comments.
