BRIEF OUTLINE: Students make words by adding a missing letter.

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Write `Matt`s Quiz` on the board, obviously your name, not mine. Then, say enthusiastically, "Now it`s time for Matt`s Quiz!" Strangely they almost always seem to go crazy and clap. I think it must be due to TV quiz shows.
  2. Then write words and students have to come up with a words by adding one letter.
    • _og = dog
    • _ag =bag
    • _oo =zoo
    • _ity = city
    • _ideo = video
    • roo_ = room
    • _ame = game, name
    • _and = hand, land, band
  3. Give students 30 seconds to talk in pairs to discuss the possible answers, then check the answers as a group.
  4.  
    Of course students might come up with more than one answer. That is fine. It`s better to use words from the textbook or lessons they are studying.
