Product Description

Playing is simple. You – the teacher or parent – choose a word. The more random, the better! Pretend the word you selected is “penguin.” For the next two minutes, students should write down absolutely everything they can think of about penguins – as well as everything that the word “penguin” makes them think of. For instance, they might write down “cold,” “ice,” “Arctic,” and “winter,” but they might also write down “ice cream” because penguins made them think of cold, and cold made them think of ice cream. That’s great! In fact, that’s better than great, because this game encourages the association of words to make writing easy, painless, and – dare we say – fun. Plus, who doesn’t like the illicit thrill of putting words in a trash can?
