|Goal of Lesson:||Students practice vocabulary spellings and meanings.|
|Time Needed:||20 minutes|
This game is great practice for vocabulary and spelling review.
Divide your class into small groups and designate one person as the group secretary.
The teacher then writes a category on the board. For example, "nouns" ,"fruits", "verbs", "places", or "things".
The students have 2 minutes to write down as many words as they can that fall into this category. Example: banana, apples, watermelons, papaya...
The team that has the most words written down after the minute is the winner.
Another variation is to give a point to each team that has a word written down that the other teams don't have. The team with the most points wins.
Writing the words on the board helps reinforce new vocabulary.
