Help Build Vocabulary Skills: Making Connections

This word game is perfect for those in-between times with family when everyone's looking for something to do. It requires little setup -- just have paper, pencils and some creative thought on hand.

What this activity will develop:
Vocabulary and thinking skills

What you'll need:
• Paper
• Pencils

What to do:
Write down the three words in one of the examples below. Help the children figure out what the three words have in common. Then write down the rest of the examples. Have children try to find the connection that links each trio of words.

If you're playing with a group of children, have the kids work in teams to create their own word connections. Have teams present their three words to each other. Can the other team discover the connection?

back, saw, sea (horse)
board, hole, house (key)
rain, over, hanger (coat)
new, blue, shine (moon)
big, locker, ball (foot)
club, tree, sit (house)
