Chicktionary - how many words can you find from the given letters Featured

Use the letters to spell as many words as you can before time runs out. To spell a word, type the letters or click the hens in order and watch the word appear.  The game shows you how many words are possible with each combination of letters it presents.  Students get really energized by the amusing sound effects and often end up shouting so much the student at the keyboard has trouble understanding each word they're shouting.  Students often want to resort to simply spelling the word without saying it so I suggest pushing them to say the word and only if it's not being understood follow up with spelling it out.  If they're not following those instruction when one of their teammates is at the keyboard it's effective for the teacher to take over on the next round and refuse to enter the words unless they say the word first.
