10 English Vocabulary Building Starter Games
A range of games and activities to make students work on their vocabulary. These work fantastically with any group from EAL KS3 to KS5. They can all be done independently, in pairs or in teams and most have a competitive element.

I use these as starters in English lessons, but my school used to have a Literacy Form Time every Monday when we would play one of these.

Most don't require any printing but can be adapted into a more physical resource if this suits your group.

These always make fun and engaging links into creative writing lessons or literacy lessons. My students love them! I even caught some of my year 7s playing the Alphabet Game at lunch! I hope your students enjoy them just as much.
