This is a quick activity that can be used in any subject where students need to remember and use key vocabulary.

How is works:

  1. Pupils call out as many words as they can about a given topic and the teacher writes them on the board. When the board is full of words the students must link at least 3 words in a verbal sentence.
  2. I get my students to come up to the front and link them with the board pen as well as saying the sentence out loud.
  3. Then each student has to write down 3 sentences using at least 3 key words in each one.
  4. The extension challenge is to write a whole paragraph using 10 words or better still using ALL the key words!

I hope your class has fun with this!
