The Teacher then chooses a child either sitting on the mat ( all children ), or all at their chairs.

The chosen child then says a word of their choice out aloud. eg. Bright. The two children sitting in front of the rest of the class then race to find the word in the dictionary.

Then when one of the two of them find it they say it aloud, the word. This means they’ve found it.

They are the winner.

The winner then reads the Dictionary Definition of the winning word out in front of the children.

They stay in front of the class and the other child goes and sits on the mat or their chair.

The child that was chosen to choose a word for the two children up the front of the class then goes and sits in front of the class, with the child that won the first game.
