Print out categories on card stock, cut out and laminate for durability.
Store separately in containers of your choice, but best if they are not clear. You may use the included labels for your containers.
When you are ready to play, take out the containers and draw ( or have a student draw) a letter from one and a category from the other. You may project the How to Play slide on your whiteboard. Players will have to think of as many words that begin with the letter drawn that fit into the category selected.
Game can be played individually, but works best in groups or teams.
Give players 3 minutes (more or less, depending on your group)
Have them record their answers on a sheet of paper, or you can print out the recording sheet
After time is up, the player(s) with the most amount of words in that category wins!

Everything you need to play this game for a long time! Includes 216 different category cards, 26 alphabet cards, labels for storage, teacher directions, student directions, optional recording sheet
