ESL Classroom Activity - Fun English GamesHow Many Words Can You Make?

Working individually or in groups, students try to make as many English words as they can from the letters that make up a word of your choice.

Write the word on the whiteboard/blackboard and give them 5 to 10 minutes (or however long you feel they need) to finish before checking that their words are valid and spelt correctly. Whoever makes the most words wins!

 

Alternatively you could assign points depending on the length of the words created, i.e. 2 points for 2 letters words, 3 points for letter words etc.

Here's an example of words that can be made from the letters in 'English':

7 letters: shingle

6 letters: single, sleigh, hinges

5 letters: shine, hinge, sling, lines

4 letters: legs, sigh, line, sing

3 letters: his, leg, she, gel

2 letters: hi, he, in, is
