Love this idea from Delights and Designs… You could easily extend this for more able pupils to contain more word types.    Children are encouraged to come up and pick a word from the teacher. They then place the stick in the correct pot. To further extend, they could then pick a word from each cup and create a sentence. Perfect for assessment!
