Do your students run into words they don't know the meaning of in class? Do they ask you how do you say... "______" in Spanish or English? I hold my students accountable to these words as they are exposed to them in class. I ask them to write these new words down and if they finish early or as morning work they are to investigate their meaning, illustrate an example to each word and study them. To hold them even more accountable I randomly pick a day where I pick a few words from their book to see if they have learned their meaning. If they pass they get a special prize. I also like to use the book The Word Collector by Peter Reynolds to inspire them to love words! This booklet it both in Spanish and English. Enjoy!
