Fun with Word Lists

I’m in love with

She has a made a website full of awesomness.  It will take me awhile to go through all the great ideas and printables she has created. One of the gems I found was her great word lists:

Pictionary-Words-Easy      Pictionary-Words-Medium

This is just a sample. You can find more at her List of Printables

So what can you do with these word lists?

I play a game called, Charades, Pictionary or Hangman.


I mixed together both easy and medium words.  Most of my students falls between these two levels. I cut them up and put them in a jar (that was once used for cinnamon and smells delightful).


The person who pulls the word then gets to decide what game we will play: Charades, Pictionary or Hangman.  If they don’t know they word, we play Hangman and they learn a  new word.

As the students play, regardless of the game, they may not know how to say what it is they want to guess. I allow them to guess in their native language but I show them the word at the end of the game.
