Vocabularyclept Poetry

Level: Intermediate and Advanced.

Skills: writing.

Topic: vocabulary, grammar, spelling.

Materials: a short (one paragraph) story, pencil and paper.

Time: 10 to 15 minutes.

The object here is to reconstruct a poem after its words have been mixed up. A poem (preferably a fairly well-known poem) is chosen and its words are mixed up, either entirely at random or rearranged in alphabetical order. The students then try to reconstruct the poem, or make a new poem from the words.
