To practice new vocabulary words,
I scrambled wrote the words in the computer, photocopied and the cut,
arrange and paste to form the word.
Another way to do it, is by cutting letter from magazines. It takes more time, but it's fun for them trying to find the letters, meanwhile they practice letter recognition, team work because if they found a letter they don't need, they can always give it to their partner (since not all the letters will be found in a magazine the amount of times needed.
