Algunos juegos y sugerencias...

Play dictionary games

Spelling Bee: Look up a word (you both probably know) and tell it to your friend. Have them try to spell it. Trade places having your friend having them chose a new word. Keep time. Fastest speller of 10 words wins.


Definition: Play with a group. Have one person slowly read definitions of words. The first person to shout out the word wins. Keep score.


Weird Words: Play with a group. When it is someone’s turn, pick a page at random and have that person call out a number from one to ten. Count down the number of words on the page and tell them that word. The player must then explain the word and use it in a sentence. The player doesn’t have to be right. In fact they can make up their own meanings or lie if they want. Other players vote on if the player is right or not. Give three points if the player gave an accurate definition/sentence. If the player was wrong in their definition/sentence give one point for each other player that they convinced in their lie.


Dictionary Race: Play with a group. Each player must have a dictionary, but it doesn’t have to be the same dictionary. One person says a word and the other players search their dic­tio­nar­ies to find it. First person to shout out the page number of the word in their dictionary wins. They must then read their def­i­n­i­tion. (It can be fun to compare dic­tio­nar­ies to see how definitions differ.)


Ficitonary: Play with a group. In turn, one person chooses a word from the dictionary. Every other player will then write their own false def­i­n­i­tion of the word and the dictionary reader copies their def­i­n­i­tion to a piece of paper. All papers are collected and read. Players earn one point for guessing the correct def­i­n­i­tion of a word; two points for writing a false def­i­n­i­tion that other players guess is the correct one; and three points for being a word picker that selects a word def­i­n­i­tion that no players vote for. A round is completed when each player has selected a word to be guessed. Keep score.

There is no sub­sti­tute for a well-played and enjoyable dictionary game. 

Pick a random word everyday

Everyday, open your dictionary to any page and read a word. Any new word. Read it. Say it. Say it again. Read the definitions and example sentences. Try to make a sentence with the new word. Try to use the word over the next few days. Tell your mother about the new word. Tell your friends. Tell your teacher. Random words can be difficult to learn, but you will be surprised at how much you remember if you tell other people about them.
