All work and no play makes for a dull writer. Come stretch your language brain in the Word Play Workshop. We will uncover magic in words (the word “four” counts its own letters: 4), learn to write anagrams and palindromes, and find many words within one word. In small groups, we’ll play games such as Boggle, Scrabble, and Hangman. We might pencil our way through a word search, a crossword puzzle, or an acrostic. We will learn some new words and adopt one or two “endangered” words. We will stretch our vocabulary, improve our spelling, and play with words by writing special kinds of poems, sketches, riddles, tongue twisters, or short-short stories. We will walk away with puzzles and facts we can use to amaze our friends and families. Most of all, we will learn that words are the key building blocks in all good writing, and have some “word-while” fun along the way.
