Grade level: 2-8
Equipment: Letters on poster paper
Game Description: Scrabble is a spelling game for P.E. A great way to incorporate literacy into your physical education program! Teams will set-up in a relay style, grab letters, spell words, and add up points. Movement, literacy, numeracy, and team-building all in one.

  1. Some prep work must be done first: create a bunch of letters on poster paper (especially common letters and vowels).
  2. For each letter, you can choose to also write a point value if you’d like to. This is not needed, however.
  3. Place the pile of letter pages face down on one end of the gym.
  4. On the other end of the gym, create a few teams who will stand in their line, relay style.
  5. On the signal, the first player from each team will run down, pick up a page, and return with it to the team.
  6. When player returns, the next player goes and does the same thing. Etc, etc.
  7. Teams use their letters to try and spell words.  Either words of choice or 4-letter or 5-letter, or themed words, etc.
  8. Play with or without a point system. Play as often as desired.
  9. Have fun!
