Spell Mate -  A spelling game designed by primary school teacher Christine Towndrow.

The gameboard is a double-sided A4 size laminated card, with a game that matches starting letters and blends to word endings on one side, and a game that matches ending letters and blends to word beginnings on the other.

View full details

Players throw the dice to chose the word beginnings or word endings to start from. Then, in one minute, list as many words as they can, from memory (or with the help on the left side of the board), that use the chosen beginning or ending.

The game is easy for children to use on their own or in groups.

The sand timer gives motivation and a score sheet keeps a record of the words made. This is a useful tool for anyone having difficulties with forming words from the letter blends and sounds such as:

  • b - at
  • sh-ip
  • br-ain

Especially helpful for learners with Dyslexia.  

For 1-6 players, ages 6 upwards (key stage 1).

Game 1 - Word Endings.

Game 2 - Word Beginnings.


  • Gameboard - A4 size double-sided laminated card
  • 1-minute sand timer (1), dice (2)
  • Photocopiable score sheet
