1. Ask your students to sit down in pairs. If you are working with an odd number of students, three students will sit together.
2. Provide your students with a grid.
3.To decide who goes first, students will have to make an addition of the number of letters of their name and surname. The one with the highest number will start.
VARIATION: You can provide your students with this alternative grid. Depending on the color of the square where they write the letter, they will have the possibility of doubling or tripling the points for that letter, as well as doubling the points of the word.
FOLLOW UP: Once your students have finished playing, ask them to fill in each square that is left with a random letter. When all the grid is full of letters, each pair will exchange their grid with another pair's grid. Now the scrabble has turned into a wordsearch!
6. Students will take turns to play. If a student can't think of a word in around 30 seconds, he or she will miss his or her turn.
7. When there is not more space in the grid or students can't think of more words, they will add up all the points.
8. The student who gets more points will win.
