Word Association

A nice quick filler or warmer to get the class thinking on their feet is just a quick round or two of word associations. There doesn't need to be any right or wrong answer.
There are a few ways of starting this activity. you can put a word on the board. flash a picture or
simply get your students to say any word and the next person in line has to say a word related to the previous one, without thinking. I always set a 2 second time limit. They just have to shout out the first word that comes into their head. You can do this around the class or get students to throw a ball around to keep them on their toes. It can take the class on a weird and wonderful journey. You can also learn an awful lot about the workings of your students minds.

Til the next time
