Spoonerisms are words or phrases in which letters or syllables get swapped. This often happens accidentally when we get our words mixed up (or merds wixed up).

 Some examples of spoonerism are:

  • keen as mustard– mean as custard
  • it’s pouring rain– it’s roaring pain

 This activity covers areas such as spelling, figurative language, word relationships & nuances in word meanings.

 This resource provides the background to spoonerism and contains 3 activities, a spoonerism class game and a poster. The kids will love these activities:
