This scrambled puzzle is one of the best UMP word family games that promotes critical thinking and helps kids become better spellers. Here are some tips on how to play and solve it:
- Start by looking at the vowel – U.
- The next step is to look for chunk – UMP.
- Once kids spotted those parts, space out vowels and consonants.
- Now, kids have a skeleton of a word and they can finish it.
- Repeat with the next word.
