Does anyone else think the week before Spring Break is rough? How about when it’s SNOWING in Ohio?
Today we were like sticks in a mud trying to work on travel vocabulary. So I ran across the hall and grabbed some paper off the roll. I taped it to the wall. I took the words and definitions and stapled them to post-it notes.
We brain stormed with a graphic organizer.
I wrote a short story about Spring Break with blanks. The kids could use context clues to match the right word. Our words were trip, travel, luggage, arrive, adventure, ticket, reservation. I pulled those from the social studies ‘travel’ vocabulary on VocabularyA-Z.com.
Under the context clue story, We wrote the words again and taped up their meanings.
Then we each told stories about what we would do over break next week using our vocab! A break is near! What do you do to help get your kids up and moving when working on teaching vocabulary?
