Are you looking for a way to get students excited about learning new words? Encourage them to become dictionary detectives.
Students are asked to become aware of words they are unfamiliar with while they're reading. They record the word, pronunciation, number of syllables, part of speech, and define the word in their own way.
This worksheet can become a permanent part of a Reader's Notebook.
Also included is the student template for the occasional study of a single word. When completed the new words display impressively. Bulletin board lettering "WOW Words" is included.
