Word Building with ‘WEBLOG’

August 31, 2007

One of the earliest games I learnt in school was word-building. Vimala Miss, my teacher at Hymamshu Jyothi Kala Peetha, told the game helped in improving our vocabulary. She used to play the game with us most of the days before the last period got over. And every time, we started, she used to tell: “Children, this game is ideal for holidays or as a diversion on class trips. Come on, Krishnan, start…”

On my way to office today morning, I was dissecting the word WEBLOG, trying to build a few words out of it. And I thought this could make a good activity out here.

So folks, how many words (2 letters and above) can you build out of the word ‘WEBLOG’? Perhaps 20!…or 40…or more?! Time limit: 30 mins.

Your time starts NOW. Happy word building.

    ok btw this is the game of anagrams. The game of word building that I knew of was like anthakshari, you have a word and the next person has to say a word starting with the last letter or something like that.
