Activating Learning in English

Tagtiv8 Word is not just an active version of  ‘a world famous word game that uses tiles’.

Our Tagtiv8 Word Games provide opportunities for the active generation of words, which can then be used as the basis or stimulus for writing in a range of situations and different text types:

  • recounts (e.g. letters, diaries, email, postcards etc);
  • non-chronological reports;
  • procedures and instructions;
  • narrative (e.g. fairy tales, fables, adventure stories, play scripts etc);
  • poetry;
  • explanations;
  • persuasion.

Tagtiv8 Word allows the learners to play various active games in order to develop an understanding of phonics, spelling and more. Session plans and activity cards for ever growing bank of games are included free of charge. To see some of our games in action, view the video…

What sort of Tagtiv8 Activities & Team Challenges can be used to inspire & enthuse children?

Teams create words that other teams have to:

  • incorporate into various text types;
  • put into alphabetical order;
  • spot the deliberate mistake;
  • contract;
  • use as a basis to generate rhyming words, antonyms, homonyms and homophones;
  • sort into word classes;
  • sort into word families.

Teams enjoy creating:

  • anagrams for others to solve;
  • sentences that others have to punctuate correctly;
  • characters and settings for narrative writing;
  • topic words;
  • root words for others to add prefixes and suffixes;
  • words that can be used to make compound words.
