Generic word work form for content vocabulary. Includes a place for the word, the part of speech, the definition, a place for the student to use the word in a sentence, draw a picture, find synonyms and rate themselves on their understanding of the word.
I like this idea as an in class way to help students learn their spelling words. This will not only help them to spell them but also learn the meaning of them. The only thing I dislike like about this is that it asks for an antonym and synonym when all words may not have a direct opposite or mean the same as another word.
Word Chants with a twist….or an Aaarrrgh! Each card gives a unique way in which the chant should be done. Such as… Sing each word like an opera singer. Read each word like a robot with a computerized voice. Read each word as you pose like a statue.
This a great closure activity/strategy to any lesson. Students can reflect on their learning....
REally? It's just a structure...not a best practice! These things are much less productive than reading / writing workshop. They seem to make teachers who need control and structure comfortable, but I don't see them facilitating the development of students who love to read and write for themselves!
