Sporcle


Today's activity comes from the Sporcle website and is a quick test to see if you know the 100 most commonly used words in the English language.

You will see a grid with 100 space and a time limit of 12 minutes set and ready.

Before you start, think about what some of the most commonly used words might be. In English articles, pronouns and prepositions are used in almost every sentence, so you might think about starting with those.
When you are ready click on 'Ready? Click to Start'.

Hello Miss Ale,
I played the game and I only could recognised 39 words of 100. I was very nervious so I couldn`t remember all the common words on language. So, I started to look around me and I couldn`t see nothing. The game is very funny, excellent and very usefull. I liked it a lot, I would play it again other day and tell you if I could break my record.
Miss Ale, I asked my mom what you had said to her in the meeting ad she told me all the afull things you told her!!Jaajajajaj, JOKE!! My mom said that you and her were laughing all the time!!
The blog is excellent

Miss Ale,
Woww, Really a good gamee! As many games you posted, this one I played it many times. The first time I played it I didn't understood the game, but then the other times I was getting better and better. The last time was when I never clicked in give up, because I remembered the other times I played. In a way this one, similar to other games had two values that are important, since we don't realise that we are learning but we really are! Because we are practising our spelling and the words that we usually use but at the same time we had our kind of clock that tell us how many minutes and seconds are missing! It was good because we had lot of time to answer and in my case I never was in the board of time to loose. Really I liked the game,as others!
Keep on Posting,
Good Byeee
Kisses & Hugs

Hello Miss Ale!
I have played this game and i can say that it was VERY difficult... I even had to ask my mother to help me (who is american) and we could only find 50 0uy of 100!
I thought there was some problem with the game becuase when it should the answer i could tell that some of them i had said but the game wouldn't take it for some reason! When i saw the answers i was quite angry at me because i hadn't remember some that were very easy... but then when i saw that problem i thought and did the "SUM" and i got that i had 70 right! So there i was happier... Well great game...
XOXO

Hello Miss Ale, first I try to do it, then my sister, (Vicky), helped me and she did preaty good. then my mother helped us. I didn´t guess a lot, but we wrote a lot.
I like it a lot the game, because you didn´t had to think about a verb tense, you had to think about main words and that is easy, but when they are a lot, the game puts better and better. Miss Ale, GO ON LIKE THAT!!!
the blog is great...keep on posting
ps: sorry I didn´t bloged a lot this week, it´s that I had to study for the test of ciencias sociales, but this days I am going to try to blog more often.
