Are there any tricks to unscrambling words?

If you are having a hard time trying to unscramble a particular word, you don’t have to fun to the answer key! Here are a few strategies that might help you solve word scramble games.

You can look for some common prefixes and suffixes.

A prefix is placed at the beginning of a word. Here are a few common examples of prefixes:
• anti
• auto
• hyper
• micro
• pre
• pro
• un

A suffix is placed at the end of a word. Here are a few examples of suffixes:
• able
• age
• action
• end
• ily
• ment
• ory

Once you find a potential prefix or suffix, it will eliminate those letters and you will have a bit of an easier time to try and unscramble the remaining letters in the word.

You can look for all the vowels.

Vowels include A,E,I,O,U and sometimes Y. The trick here is to write down all of the vowels you see in the potential word. Now, it will be a bit easier to see what the remainder of the letters are that you have to work with.

Supplies needed:

  • Free printable word scramble game (the download link is located at the bottom of this page)
  • White printer paper or cardstock
  • Pens or pencils

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
