This activity is designed to encourage students to pull out words they know from the storage area of the brain.

  • Write up a long word on the board. For example: 

  • Show how using the letters in this word you can make new words:






same etc.
  • Challenge the students to make as many words as they can. Giving a time limit will add to the tension.

You can play this game many times choosing a new starter word each time.
