GUESS WHAT?!? The Spelling Game

This is  the 3rd and last activity for Cambridge Movers and Flyers exams.

It's conceived to improve students' writing skills.

Print the page, fold it on the line, so none will see the answer and then cut the single word sections. Afterwards invent your game.

It could be a team game where each group has the same words to guess; you might assign points to the fastest on giving the answer. 

To check that nobody is cheating send a member of the first group to the second group and so on. They will be incorruptible referees!!!

Another possibility is doing exactly the opposite: opposite: tell them the word in order to guess which definition suits it.

In any case, I would  start with one topic and keep adding topics one by one to refresh the previous ones and learn the new ones.


1st Warm up  ---> GUESS WHAT?!? The Vocabulary Matching Game
2nd Speaking ---> GUESS WHAT?!? The Card Game 
3rd Writing ---> GUESS WHAT?!? The Spelling Game

I'll soon publish a second set of cards and games about different topics. 
Stay tuned! 

I design series of activities based on a communicative method that will help children to practice the grammar they're learning at school.
Many ESL activities, I see, are nothing more than 'fill in the blank' exercises that only teach kids how to fill in blanks and miss the whole point of learning to speak and understand a new language.
It's much easier and more fun to learn by doing, and you'll be surprised at how quickly you'll see valuable results.
