Last & First

1) Word chain game

In pairs or around the class. The last letter of the word is the first letter of the new word: cat tree english happy

Some constraints to use in the game:

Words must be three letters long: dog gun new why yes shy you use...
Words must be four letters long: long give each have easy your race...
Words must be five letters long and the middle letter is the first letter of the next word: knock order drive input peace...

Some rules: no plurals or names.

2) Sentence chain game

Somebody says a sentence and the last word of the sentence is the first word of the next sentence. Quite often it's a strange word to start a sentence but it challenges the student to be creative. Higher levels best.

Have a look at the example below...

So one person says a few words
Words are what make sentences
sentences finish with a full stop
STOP! you've broken it!
it is time to go to bed
bed, lamp, wardrobe are things in my bedroom

and so on around the class or in pairs.
