Spelling Connections
(visual/kinesthetic)

Have partners create word cards for the words listed here. Tell them to make a game board of 20 squares x 20 squares. Each player draws 5 cards. Player 1 prints a card word anywhere on the board, one letter per square. Player 2 prints another card word so that it connects to the first word by one letter. Players take turns adding words to the game board so that each word has at least one letter in common with another word but does not touch in any other way. A stumped player skips a turn. The player with the fewest cards or the first player to get rid of all 5 cards wins.
