Writing A-Z-word lists is a great activity to stretch brains and build vocabulary!
Here are the steps!
- Write the letters A-Z vertically in 4-5 columns on a classroom white board. This can also be done on a chalkboard or Smart Board screen. If you don’t have a whiteboard and would like a PDF template, print one here:
2. Second, choose a category, such as places, people, foods, adjectives, nouns, verbs etc.
3. Third, explain to the children that they have to write one word for each letter of the alphabet that fits the designated category for the day.
Fill in 2-3 letters with examples to get them started. In the picture below you see examples of Onomatopoeias.
3. Fourth, have 2-3 children come up at a time to write in a word. It gets challenging. But the kids can do it! And towards the end, if there are any letters without a word, you can use the list that I provide for each topic below!

Below, I’m adding simple activity ages with instructions for students to complete independently. Essentially, I’m taking this game and putting it into worksheet form to create additional options for parents and teachers.
