    Free version of Word Magnets. Really useful especially if you have an interactive whiteboard. Lots of different ways of arranging letters into words, categories, order, etc. And of course you can arrange whole words too. (Don't click on the Word Magnets 2 link unless you want the paid-for site licence - but if you do it's a great site to support)
