"Would You Like A Synonym With That" Synonym Word Wall- This display would be a great way to get students to expand their vocabulary by visually seeing the different words they can use or by adding more synonyms to the wall.
Each student comes up and picks a stick out of my hand; they have to place the word in the right cup. Then, after all sticks have been sorted, students can choose one stick from each cup and create a sentence using all three words. A great informal assessment!
Fun idea! "Here's an easy way for students to practice their spelling words. Have them draw a big scribble on their page - remind them to leave big spaces in their scribble! Using coloured pencils, they can then fill the spaces with their words."
