WordTeasers: Middle School
The Middle School Edition includes 150 starters using vocabulary critical for 7-9th grade success on state assessment tests.
3" x 3" cards
This little tangerine box of conversation starters helps middle school students master test-taking words while talking and laughing at the same time.
Is your vocabulary "mundane" or "nondescript"? Even if you have an "innate" talent when it comes to vocabulary or idioms, you and your family will have hours of fun playing Word Teasers. Each small box contains 150 two-sided cards. For the SAT Vocabulary Edition, one side of each card provides a vocabulary word's pronunciation, function, definition and synonyms. The other side provides a Word Teaser Challenge conversation starter, such as "Who among your friends is the most obstreperous?" or "Share a truism about yourself." For the Funny Sayings Edition, one side of each card describes an idiom's meaning and origin, while the other side provides an Idiom Challenge, such as "Talk about yourself for 30 seconds off the cuff." The Junior Edition is similar to the SAT Vocabulary Edition, except the vocabulary words featured are simpler and geared to younger students (6th grade and younger). These challenges are not only an excellent way to test the player's comprehension, but they can also spark interesting discussions! There are no set rules for playing Word Teasers. The game box and website provide ideas, but Word Teasers is versatile and the possible uses for these cards are limited only by your imagination. You can use Word Teasers by yourself as a study aid or use it in groups to quiz or entertain each other. Both students and adults will be challenged by the "plethora" of new words they discover in this set. ~ Lisa
