Building Vocabulary

Lexicon Geeks

Word Game

The goal of this word game is to help build vocabulary. Test your stored knowledge and vocabulary skills, before researching words online or in the dictionary.

Directions:

1. Write a word that begins with the letter B and ends with the letter K in the leave a reply section below.

2. Select any two words from the list we have provided below, or any two words that other participants have shared in the leave a reply section, that you’re unfamiliar with. Google the word(s) to learn their definitions and then write a complete sentence using the word(s) you’ve selected.

3. If you select a word that you don’t know how to pronounce, google the word. Usually, there will be a megaphone next to the word googled. Click on the megaphone to listen to the correct pronunciation of the word.

3. Pay it forward by sharing your sentences in the leave a reply section below (keep scrolling down).

Let’s get started. I’ll start:

• buttermilk

• ballpark

• broomstick

• blink

• break

• birthmark

• balk

• bleak

• bulwark

• berserk
