PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Wordplay Junior: TEN Word Games is a series of fun language games that could be used as bell-ringers or bonus activities for 4th through 6th graders. It could be a great BACK-TO-SCHOOL activity to get kids excited about learning language, vocabulary, and grammar (subjects they're not normally thrilled about).

I created these word games as a way to get students' brains working as they come into class and get ready to work. Each activity engages students' minds in a different way, and each is designed to teach a different language concept or skill--from basic phonics to roots and affixes to vocabulary development. The goal is to get them thinking about language and to get the creative juices flowing--and a somewhat sneakier goal is to covertly convince kids that English can be fun!

The unit includes TEN different word games with thirty rounds each:

* "Dueling Homophones” – Students are given two homophones and are asked to write sentences that correctly use BOTH words.
* “Word Factory” – Students are given a prefix, suffix, and a root and are asked to list words that contain one or more of these word pards.
* “Spelling Bee” – Students figure out the missing letters to spell a high-level word.
* “Word Exchange” – Students are given a passage from a classic middle-grade book and are asked to replace one word with as many words as possible that still make sense in context.
* “One Plus One” – Using a series of clues, students try to guess the two simple words that make up a compound word.
* “Synonymous” – Students are given a words and are asked to list synonyms and antonyms.
* “Seussify” – Students come up with rhyming lines like Dr. Seuss.
* “Story Time” – Students are given six random vocabulary words and are asked to write a very short story that uses all of them.
* “Classifier” – Students are given a passage from a children's book and asked to identify the part of speech of six words.
* “Idiom Mashup” – Students are given a nonsense phrase made up of two common idioms mashed together and are asked to identify the two idioms.
