An activity where students try to find the words

To do this ESL activity:

  • Write down at least five letters on the board contained within a circle.
  • Have the students try to find as many words as they can using those letters.
  • You can add some rules to, like they can only use each word one time or the words have to always contain a certain letter.
  • After a few minutes stop and have the students read their words.

You can give the students a point for each word they find. Or more like Boggle you can give them 1 point for 3 or 4 letter words, 2 points for 5 letter words, etc.

"Hi Ian! I loved the course! It wasn't really difficult, but it was not easy - and I feel like I learned a lot. I definitely plan to continue using the resources. I have applied for and set up over 7 interviews already in China. If you add on various additional certs, like Young learners and what not I would take those. I plan to take a job in China and blog about it for the year to qualify for the 1000 hour cert. Thanks so much for an awesome learning experience" - Sandra Dee Bonadonna, TEFL 120
