Last time we played this game to lighten the mood and revise some of the vocabulary areas we have covered recently.
1 - Divide the board into a grid, On one axis write the categories you wish to cover, I also included easier categories such as cities and names in order to help the less advanced students.
2 Divide the class into teams - The size will depend on how much English your students know, with elementary/beginner students, use bigger teams.
3 - Ask students to shout out some (5-10) letters of the alphabet.
4 - Write them in the grid and go through some examples.
Letter Name City Part of the body Something in the home
F Fay Florence Face Freezer
5 - Set a suitable time limit (2-10 minutes) - encourage students to use their notes from previous classes and their smart phones.
6 - The winning time is the one who complete the grid or has the most correct entries when the time limit is up.
7 - Elicit answers from the whole class, write them on the board,
