Buy Missing Vowel Word Recognition PuzzlesThe missing vowel puzzle is a simple puzzle for children and adults alike. As the name suggests, the vowels have been removed from a word and you must work out what the word is.
The puzzle can range from very simple to very hard depending on the word, how many vowels it contains and where they are placed relative to each other; in combination with the length of the word and how common it is.
In other words, there are a range of factors that can be varied in order to make the puzzle harder. They may be enjoyed with no time limit or with a time pressure applied which can make them trickier still! A sntnc cn b rd qt sly wtht vwls d t cntxt.

Missing vowel word recognition puzzles are great for children as well as harder ones for vowels as they help children think about and recognise words and the pattern of consonants and vowels that comprise them - this is particularly effective when it comes to improving spelling as you are actually thinking about the individual letters and not the word as a whole.
