Description

Word categories games are a great way to build vocabulary, word choice, and critical thinking skills in our upper elementary, middle school, and high school students.

Vocategories, my line of vocabulary games with categories, is meant to bring up student engagement and fun while working on these important English skills.

Encouraging students to find words that start with a certain letter that also fit into certain word categories challenges them to think critically about the English vocabulary they know and it also helps them learn and associate new words as they compare answers with peers. These categories games are great for centers, early finishers, ELA warm-ups, and more!

I personally have used these Christmas categories games with my ESL students as a warm-up or center to expand their English vocabulary. You may allow them to use a dictionary or website to scaffold them, based on their understanding of English.

This word game with categories is played like the popular game, Scattergories. A letter dice is rolled to decide which letter all of the words and phrases must start with. Each student receives the same list of word categories. The timer is set for a specific time, and students have to work to try to write down a word or phrase that fits into the specific word categories on their list. When time is up, students compare lists to score points. All the details are inside this resource!

There are four lists in each of my Vocategories resources. There is one character education list in each, as well as two that go with the theme of the month or season, and one that can be used year-round. This December set of word category games includes the following lists:

  • Christmas
  • Winter Holidays
  • Generosity
  • Baking

You may also use this is like a word categories worksheet; however, I find that friendly competition keeps students engaged longer! I hope your students enjoy playing Vocategories with these Christmas word games for kids!
