Graphic organizers are a great way to help students learn vocabulary or just prepare for the lesson content ahead.

This alphabet organizer is fantastic. Select a category (food, jobs, animals, clothing etc..) and then have students in pairs/groups try to come up with as many words for the alphabet organizer as possible. Also get them to draw a picture! (this really facilitates learning/vocab acquisition).

Then, play categories. Each group names an item for a letter. One item=1 point. If they repeat an already mentioned item, they lose 2 points! Keep going around the groups until all the items for a letter are finished. Start with the next letter. The team with the most points wins.
