Product Description
This activity is a fun and engaging way for students to practice generating words based on word parts. It can be played whole group, small group, or in partners, and it easily adaptable to different ability levels.

The game is played in rounds, similar to the board game, Scattergories. For each list, students independently generate words for each word part listed by adding letters to the beginning or end and recording their words on the corresponding line. They receive 1 point for each syllable in the word they generated, but if they have the same word as someone else, they must cross it out. For example, if the word part is "at," a student might write cat (1 point) or attach (2 points). Once all the words have been shared, the student with the most points for the total list of words wins for that category.

I have used this game in a whole group and with a small group, and found it to be a really fun way to get students excited about working with words! Have fun!
