Word building. ONE-SENTENCE GAMES. More doesn’t always mean better. Smarter is better. One sentence may be as useful for teaching purposes as a wall of text with lots of words. My today’s post is a collection of one-sentence games (see Word Games if you’d like to try some games with words). These are games that require next to no time to prepare and might be used to help students retain new vocabulary and grammar, improve their speaking and writing, while playing around with the language. Similar to the Telescopic Text experiment, the aim of the game is to expand a phrase or a simple sentence into as long a sentence as possible by adding extra words.
Go. Snake-word. Scrabble letters. Here are some useful learning activities based around scrabble letters.
Preparation This requires a bit of time to prepare the scrabble letters but they can be used with all ages and levels so it may well be a good investment of your time. You need to prepare a set of scrabble letters for each group of 4 - 5 students. It’s a good idea to copy the letters onto different coloured card for each set. If students are working close to each other it makes it easy to separate them at the end and for tasks when you need more letters you can mix two sets together. Activities Once you have made your sets there are hundreds of things you can do with them. Spelling tests Divide the class into teams and give each team a set of scrabble letters. Conditional chain game. Circle games. They are mostly used with young learners, but teenagers will play them and so will the right kind of adult class: one that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Procedure Put students into teams (no more than eight or so in each team) and get each team to line up facing the board.The student at the front of each team needs chalk or a board pen. Show a word or a picture to all the students who are at the back of each line. Use a word you've studied in class, that all the students should know.The students at the back of the line should ‘write' each letter of the word with their finger, on the back of the student in front of them in the line. The students pass the letters down the line by doing the same and ‘writing' the letters in turn on the back of the student in front of them.The student at the front of the line writes the letters on the board to make the word. A few words of warning with this activity; it's a good idea to start with short words and short lines of students as it can take a while to pass the letters down the line.
Scrabble letters. These activities all use letters from the classic game of Scrabble.
