Change One Letter

Post  Choices on Thu Jan 05, 2012 6:32 pm

I wrote Denise a few days ago asking could I start this game, but have not heard back from her. If this is not OK, it can always be deleted.

On another forum that I go to, we have played this game for several years - it is quick and easy and interesting. I thought perhaps it would work here, even though it is not HP related. Our forumers love language and proper grammer, so maybe a word game will be successful.

All you do is change any one letter in the word played to make a new word. It must be six letters long and a real word. For example......"played" can become "delays" and that can become "stayed", etc. I'll throw out the first word.........

Great idea, Choices! I play different versions of this game all the time with my classes. They love them and these sorts of games really improve their spelling.

repast > staple

I didn't realize we could scramble the letters. I thought we had to keep the same order (as in repast > repost).

staple > bleats


Yes, the letters may be rearranged in any fashion as long as you keep the word to 6 letters and change only one letter to form a new word.
