Another timeless favourite for classes of any level!  It’s another one of those games which I don’t play for ages and then re-discover, wondering why I ever stopped playing it in the first place.
I normally divide the class into teams and then award points for the order in which they finish, rather than having a time limit.  So if there are four teams in the class, the first team with a correctly-spelt word in each category wins four points, the next team three, and so on.

Here are some ideas for categories:

  • regular verbs
  • irregular verbs
  • animals
  • food / drink
  • something in the classroom
  • something in the house
  • adjectives (positive / negative / personality / appearance)
  • buildings / places in the town
  • jobs
  • cities / countries
