Guess My Word: A Vocab Game
The key to learning new vocabulary doesn't lie in rote lists, sad to say. Research is clear: for new vocabulary to stick, kids need to connect new words to their world. Here's a thought-provoking activity to make new vocabulary words "stick" in the mind of your youngster.
What You Need:
- Two players
- Your child’s vocabulary list.
*Feel free to think outside of the box, too. You don't need to limit yourself to lists of words from the language arts folder; you could use new words from your child's new math unit in measurement, such as volume, capacity, length, height, width, weight, and temperature. Often, teachers will provide vocabulary lists at the beginning or ending of units for the purpose of studying at home. Check with your child’s teacher for a list of words your child is learning.
