Try to make a story using any combination of the words above. You will then be able to write a very evocative story based on the 5 senses used above. You can also write a spring story using only the onomatopoeic words if you wish.



Please not also that the words in the ‘SUGARY SMELLS’ section are perfectly fine to use as tastes also (i.e. the tutti-fruity taste of apples, the confectionery taste of peaches etc.). This is true of all 3 of the smells section because smell and taste are so interlinked. A human has only five tastes: salty, sour, savoury, sweet and bitter. Even though we can distinguish between approx. 10,000 different smells, taste and smell share a lot of the same adjectives.

You should be able to get 3 separate classes/lesson plans from these grids. Students love to write a story based on words they had to work hard to decipher. Encourage them all to beg/borrow/buy a dictionary the day before. It is a great way for them to enjoy dictionary work.

My suggestion is to tell them they are ‘nature detectives’ for the day and they have to figure out a mystery. Then let them try to fill in the blanks in pairs, not as individuals. Individuals get frustrated and give up. A pair (or team of 4 if the class is weak) will always try to beat the other pairs or teams.

Offer a reward. Be creative and bring in one of the more unusual items on the grids: meringue, some goulash, nougat or a caramel bar, for example. If you can objectify the strange words on the grids, it acts as a mnemonic device, a mental hook, so to speak.

If they TASTE it as well, they will remember the class (and the word) forever!

As a bonus, I included 100 magical words to use in an essay. The stdents should be encouraged to pick out 10-20 of the words they are familiar with and include them in a descriptive passage entitled: ‘My magical adventure’.

Happy hunting! The solutions are in the grids below.

These words are some of the most beautiful and resonant in the English language. Each one should have the effect of improving a passage of writing. A lot of them are phonoaesthetic, which means they have a quality of sound that appeals to people. That is why Tolkien, Edgar Allen Poe, Japanese, Italians and Spanish people amongst others all love the word: CELLAR DOOR. The fact that it is two words didn’t seem to concern them! My own personal favourite is frazil-silver. Frazil is the archaic term for the ice crystals tumbling down a mountain stream. If there’s a better image out there than frazil-silver ice crystals cascading down a birthstone-blue mountain stream, I would love to hear about it!
