Format: Spiral-bound
I first became aware of the existence of this book, paradoxically enough, through its absence. It was the most elusive resource book in the school where I was working. "Who's got the vocab games book?", was the most FAQ in the teachers' room.
It's an excellent book, with materials suitable for all levels and age groups. Younger students love "Word Battleships", while older students find the "Half Crosswords" both challenging and entertaining.
One of the book's most attractive features is the fact that it cuts down significantly on class preparation time. Once, when teaching proverbs, I had this "brainwave" and spent ages painstakingly writing them out on cards and cutting them in half, only to discover that I needn't have bothered. Watcyn-Jones had got there first with "Broken Proverbs". It's just one of many matching pairs games among the 90 activities in the book, each of which is accompanied by clear instructions and an answer key as required. All you need is access to a photocopier and scissors. In fact some activities require neither. "Three-in-a-row", a fun quiz, is an ideal stand-by for that class one has to give at a moment's notice.
What impresses most about "Vocabulary Games and Activities" is the sheer variety of activities it has to offer. Apart from the afore-mentioned, you can find: bingo, dominoes, word-grouping activities, conundrums, "Find someone who", board games and dictations, all with the underlying characteristics of encouraging interaction in the classroom, reinforcing existing vocabulary and teaching new lexis in an almost effortless, and always enjoyable way.
Finally, it's worth pointing out that a wide range of language is covered.

An essential buy for any discerning ELT teacher. Yes it's pricey...but you'll find you will be using this again and again. Loved it so much that I now have the entire Penguin Photocopiables collection!

Brilliant, well worth buying. This book has many, varied activities that can be used at any level. Even those from a higher level can be adapted to suit the lower levels.

I love it and my students love it! Students have fun in lessons and learn at the same time. Covers many levels and it is photocopyable. Excellent for the 10 minutes before lunch or at the end of the day when everyone is getting tired. Works well as a bribe for getting work finished as well!
