Well, this is a phonetic equivalent, where, instead of having to find a six to go with a six, students groupings of, say, three or four, find a word of one particular sound to go next to another of the same sound. They will need to pronounce the words to each other

in order to check their suitability. The correct solution sees the pieces of paper forming a ring.
