How to play our guessing game

The guessing game is useful for helping kids remember the spelling of ten English words connected with the theme Colours. If your students are new to this topic, or if they need some help with their spelling, introduce the vocabulary by using our picture dictionary before playing the game. Otherwise, they may find it quite difficult.

To start, click on the Guess the mystery word text. The word to guess is represented by a row of yellow boxes (one box for one letter) at the top of the game board.

In the middle of the board there are ten items that belong to the piglet. At the bottom of the board you can see two rows of letters. Click on any letter that you think is included in the word. If the mystery word has this letter, it appears in the proper yellow box. However if you choose a letter that is not in the word, the piglet loses one item. Try to guess the word before our friend loses all the items.

When you complete the word (no matter as a winner or loser), click on the Next word button to continue the game.
