Description

Entertain and challenge your teens with this compelling collection of word puzzles in PDF & Google Slides format. There are many different ways you might want to use these 38 word play slides (19 questions + 19 answer key slides) in your classroom, including:

1. Use as a routine bell-ringer activity to begin class one day each week. You could call this “Three of a Kind Thursday” if you enjoy alliteration, but the slides will work great any day of the week.

2. Use them as a sponge activity to soak up those occasional last few minutes of a class period when a daily lesson wraps up more quickly than you planned.

3. Use them as part of an ongoing team activity/contest that runs a full nine-week quarter. More details included in the download.

4. Use the slides as a reward for classes that hit certain benchmarks or goals.

There are 19 game slides (each slide has three questions on it with a separate attractively designed answer slide) in this packet of PDF & Google Drive slides, allowing you to use one per weekly session. Most semesters run 18 weeks but I added an extra question just in case there’s one you don’t like/want to skip.

However you decide to use these slides, I hope they find a place in your teacher’s toolbox of activities. Students enjoy these lighter activities that provide a fun way to help develop word sense, logic, and vocabulary while building a joy for learning in your classroom community.
