WORD PLAY | Vocabulary Building Word Game for ESL - Plays like Scattergories



WORD PLAY is a great game (similar to Scattergories) to brainstorm vocabulary words. Choose a letter and your students must think of vocabulary words within each category on their card starting with the chosen letter. This game is always a classroom favorite and I decided to make it a little bit more colorful and easy to use. The possibilities are endless with 80 different category prompts, you can use this game over and over again with different starting letters!
