Etc … Etc …

Some words are abbreviated – like etc, which is a quick way of saying etcetera. Circle the letters E – T – C in that order as the appear inside these words … sketch, fetch, wretch, hectic, frenetic, phonetic, fetch. Can you think of anymore ? How many words can you then elongate back using the letters E – T – C ?

* Teacher’s note – this game can be adapted to include all letters that are abbreviated, such as missus – “M – R – S” or “S – O – S”.
