No matter how well you plan your lessons, on occasion you may complete your lesson before the class period is over. Here is a simple activity you can use whenever this occurs.
Write a multisyllabic word on the chalkboard that is from your lesson or is related to your lesson. Have students write as many words as they can using the letters in the word. On the chalkboard, write the words the students come up with. You can easily make this activity a contest to see who comes up with the most words.
