Creepy crawlies

Module 5


1.Spelling can be fun!

Game 1: Word chains

  1. You can play this game in groups.
  2. One person begins by writing down a word. The next person must begin the next word with the last letter of the previous word, e.g.


  1. Can you circle your classroom with a word chain?

Game 2: Growing words

Begin with a one letter word, such as i, a or o. Make the word grow, by adding one letter at a time. Each time you must make a new word, e.g.

a o
an do
ant nod
pant node
paint nodes

Challenge your friends to see how long a list they can make.

Game 3: Word-loop

  1. Decipher this word-loop. Read clockwise.
  2. All letters are to be used. Do not use words more than once.
  3. Sometimes small words may be found within bigger ones.

Game 4: Time Trials

  1. The challenge is: How many 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 syllable words, beginning with …, can you write down in 60 seconds:
  2. No dictionaries may be used. Break up into smaller groups to check each other’s words.
  3. Keep score, giving values to the words according to syllables / length.

Game 5: Scrambled Eggs

Just as all things are connected in this world, letters can be connected in so many different ways. Below are a bunch of eggs with a letter on each one. See how many words you can scramble up; but no jumping over the eggs!


'CH' 'NCH' 'TCH'
'ch' follows a long vowel 'nch' follows a short vowel 'tch' follows a short vowel
church pinch thatch
church pinch thatch
inch hatchet

You must add to the list!

[LO 6.1.4]


Try these!

Remember to study the word.

Cover it up!

Try to spell it!

Write it.

Check your word!

These words are missing their first letters – solve the mystery!

__adow __ink __ief
__irsty __iver __oulder
__ich __ip (ouch!) __elf
__under __isper __ere
__eel __out __ought

Challenge!! How many of these words can you fit into a nonsense sentence?

Fill in the missing words to complete the rhymes:

To reach the coffee on the ___stand on tiptoe and stretch yourself!

I'm so ____ I need a drink. Water tastes awful, so I ___!

Little Bo Beep has lost her sheep – ___ would they be fast asleep?

___ and lightning makes me quiver. I get so scared I start to ___ .


LO 6

LANGUAGE STRUCTURE AND USE The learner will know and be able to use the sounds, words and grammar of the language to create and interpret texts.

We know this when the learner:

6.1 works with words:

6.1.1 uses prefixes, stems and suffixes/extensions to form words;

6.1.3 records words in a personal dictionary;

6.1.4 uses phonics and spelling rules to spell words correctly;

6.2 works with sentences:

6.2.3 identifies and uses nouns, pronouns, prepositions, articles and conjunctions;

6.2.6 consolidates use of punctuation learned so far.

hmm well what is the answer
how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4
kinnecy Reply
can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

abeetha Reply
I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
I'm interested in nanotube
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.
Ramkumar Reply
what is nano technology
Sravani Reply
what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
