A-Z The Alphabet Game

This A-Z game can be used before a speaking/reading/writing class to generate some background knowledge, or could be used for vocabulary revision. The only materials needed are A-Z worksheet per group, a white board and 3 board markers.
1.Ask students to get into three groups (green, blue and red).
2.Write the topic on the whiteboard.
3.Distribute the alphabet- an “A-Z sheet” to each group.
4.Get them to generate some ideas related to the topic. Have students find words starting with each letter.
5.Meanwhile, write the letters of the alphabet on the white board in three columns (A,B,C…Z)
6.Once students have generated a list of words related to the topic, each group is then given a pen of the color of their group. Ask each group to stand in a line facing the white board.
7.The members standing at the front in the line from each group runs to the board and write a word next to a letter of their choice. (Three members at the board are writing their words at the same time). Once they have written a word/phrase, then they quickly run back to the group and give the pen to then next member in the line for them to write another word. If one letter is already chosen, the others don’t have the chance to use that letter anymore.
8.When all the letters have been used, the game is over.
9.Go over each word checking spelling and meaning with the students. Students are also required to explain and support their findings, if agreed among the groups, the group gets the point. The ones who have the most words are the winner!
