Chopped! - a new word game

It's time for a brand new word game on Road To Grammar.

In Chopped, the player is given a set of eight letters and you need to cut the letters out in such a way that they form a word of three letters or more. You'll need to be fast to beat the timer, which goes faster every round. You get bonuses for longer words or for finding a word quickly.

Chopped should work really well as a class game on a smartboard. Try it now while it's still easy to get a high score!
