Making words

Form as many news words as you can using only the letters from the indicated word.

Suitable for grades 1-4


How does it work?

Each worksheet has a single word at the top. Try to find as many words as you can using ONLY the letters from that one word. Space is provided for 4-letter, 5-letter, 6-letter and 7-letter solutions that you can find. You score points for each word you can find, with higher points awarded for longer words:

  • 4-letter words: 1 point each
  • 5-letter words: 2 points each
  • 6-letter words: 4 points each
  • 7-letter words: 7 points each

See who can score the most points!

There is one worksheet for each letter of the alphabet, where the starting word begins with that letter.

BONUS: An additional worksheets is provided with the word ‘ANGRIEST’, as this word results in a very high number of possible anagrams – see the last answers sheet for all the potential words to be found from that one word.
