Alphabet Game

I use this alphabet game to practice vocabulary and to get my students to write sentences.
I put my students into groups of threes: 

The first student picks a letter, the next student thinks of a word with this letter and the last student makes a sentence with this word. 

Student: Student: Potato.  Student: I ate potatoes for my dinner two days ago.

The aim of the activity is to write a word and sentence for every letter of the alphabet. The students take turns choosing a letter, thinking of a word and making a sentence. With 26 letters each student will write at least 8 sentences.
