Kids will practice listening and speaking skills in this interactive vocabulary activity. Students will pair up and take turns responding to questions about difficult words they've encountered and what they learned by using context clues and a dictionary.
This lesson plan teaches kids about W.E.B. Du Bois through video and a short informational text. Students will compare/contrast their findings and create a poster in small groups showing what they learned.
Students will have the time of their lives, as they represent their school day on a timeline. From the moment they wake up to the end of school, students will enjoy communicating their day in chronological order.
Your students will use their imaginations and context clues to gain understanding of inference, evidence, and schema with this activity. Use this worksheet as an introduction to the vocabulary in the Inferring With Pictures lesson plan.
A good vocabulary is an important tool for any speaker or writer to have. But vocabulary learning doesn’t stop after one grade -- chances are, your child will be building vocabulary well into adulthood. Get your student started early on vocabulary work with our many materials. We have everything from straight-to-the-point worksheets and workbooks to online games and drills to make vocab study fun.
A thesaurus brings out your child’s inner muse. Instead of writing, “good,” try “wonderful,” “exceptional,” “acceptable,” or “positive.” There are lots of ways to build vocabulary. With some building vocabulary help, your students will shine, unless you prefer that they excel, or develop, or succeed! To teach building vocabulary skills, you can draw on creative writing exercises, word searches, and fill in the blank stories. Our building vocabulary resources are for all ages from first grade to middle school. A first or second grader can learn building vocabulary tricks like compound words. For example, what’s a pancake but a flat cake that you cook in a pan? Older kids can read engaging stories, or discuss specialized diagrams. For example, learning to build vocabulary about a cell will involve studying a diagram of its structure. Our building vocabulary help will keep your student occupied for hours. Give them a little extra help with our reference materials for word meaning.
