The Great Alphabet Challenge!

Post by Moussaid_Rachid on Tue Jan 26, 2010 4:59 pm

Dear Colleagues,

The game I want to present you is called "The Great Alphabet Challenge! ". As the name denotes, the game consists in creating a sentence, or group of sentences where the first letter of each word starts with successive letters of the alphabet. Seems interesting! Isn't it?

The only condition to the game is that the sentence or the sentences must make sense and be grammatically correct!

Students in the beginning maybe given the three below examples as a kind of encouragement.


1. Are British chefs dutifully engaged finding great hotels in jolly Korean locations? My niece once put quite red strawberry trifles under visitor William’s X-Men yoghurts - zikes!

2. A big Canadian danced endlessly for Greek homeowners. I joyfully kicked last month’s newspapers onto Peter’s questionable rug. Suddenly two unicyclists vanished - “Weird X-Files,” yawned Zoe.

3. Ask Bernard carefully, “Does Edward follow gentle hippies?” In jest, Kenneth lent Mark next October’s purple quilt - really stupid. Test Uncle Vernon with x-rays, you zit!


This game fosters student creative writing skills and broadens imagination. I've given this to my students this week and gave them a while to come up with a meaningful piece of writing; and the best alphabet story writer will win a surprise gift. I'll let you know about the best abc story.

Have fun together with your students.

Good idea! Mr aziz4u.

Every member drops in a word respecting the alphabet order and then we together spin a sentence or a paragraph.

If you agree, it will be good from time to time any member could add two words to twist meaning or overcome a predictable blockage. Wink
