    • Divide the group into two and click the timer at about 2 minutes.
    • Now one partner has to enact the works written. They can imitate as well.
    • One student will try to read the word quickly, and the other person will guess the word or the closely associated word.
    1. One word splash - Make the student read out a short story or a passage.
    • Now ask them to comprehend everything that's written in a single word.
    • This will induce the student to read carefully and come up with good words universally.
