Each team makes a line near the board, then one student per team comes up to the white board and writes a word. The next student has to use the last letter of the word on the board to make another word. At the end of the game, the team with the longest word snake with all the words joined up wins the game.

    I plan to use the Word Snake activity with my reg ed ELAR class using vocab from our class novel. Looks fun and engaging. I’ll let you know how it turns out. Of course I’ll be tweaking it a bit to meet our needs. Thank you.
