What is Tagtiv8 Word?

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

Tagtiv8 Word provides opportunities for the active generation of words. These 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…
