Wiggly Word Worm

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes

This is a fun way to revise vocabulary, checking recognition and pronunciation.
You can present the word worm on the board, or on a handout. Write a list of words in the shape of a worm with no boundaries between each word. Soitmightlooksomethinglikethiswithafewwigglesforawormyeffect.
Students must then find the words within a time limit. They could work in pairs or individually.
Once the majority have found all the words, give them a few minutes to practise saying them, while you monitor and correct any pronunciation errors. Then feedback worm style around the class; you should be able to take away the handouts!
Next time you teach a new lexical set, get students to make their own word worms for homework, and use them next lesson!
