I use this activity as a bell ringer or morning warm up with my third grade students. We call it "What word could it be."
Students are given clues (such as "is an adverb," "is an irregular plural noun," or "has two syllables) and then they have to decide which word the clues are referring to.
Great practice for parts of speech and additional CCSS language standards.
Product includes word cards, clue cards, and directions.
