This game will build your student's vocabulary while increasing their ability to orally describe items. It is a team game that can be played for short or longer periods. A student selects a category card and then has one minute to get their teammates to say the 8 related words on the card using only words. No hand motions allowed. Over time you will notice an increase in your student's writing and speaking. The categories are varied but are all based on words children would know or should add to their vocabulary.
I created this game years ago and have added cards over the years. There are now 135 cards with different types of categories which should keep your students interested for an entire year.
