Looking for a unique way to get students to retain their vocabulary word meanings?
The research-based activities in this product require students to think about their vocabulary words from different angles.
Forty task cards in Truth or Dare format
help students to approach the words from many angles. They cater to a variety of learning styles, and this same task card bunch can be used with the same Tier 2 list multiple times or with different lists as the year progresses. Simply laminate and store. Truth cards feature more straight-forward, academic style questions. Dare cards require more creativity and critical thinking.
In addition to the Vocabulary Truth or Dare game, this resource also contains a choice board for any vocabulary list
. The choice board features twelve different assignment options that will help you provide a personalized learning experience for students at a variety of readiness levels. Additionally, the rubric allows the teacher to conference with the student to establish expectations together, thereby setting the student up for success.
While teachers could use these vocabulary activities to fill precious extra classroom moments with valuable study time, they can also be used as an assignment that would last an entire class period. Use as bell ringers, station activities, review sessions, and more
These practice exercise is perfect for an ELA class (middle or high school), but would also be appropriate for any Tier 2 list. The tasks are challenging, so I would not recommend this file for elementary-level students. These cards come with a title sheet and a student answer sheet.
The goals of this product are as follows:
- Engage students in meaningful 21st century learning
- Differentiate for various learning styles and readiness levels
- Provide meaningful practice and repetition with vocabulary words to increase likelihood of retention
- Allow creative avenues for associations to occur
- Offer student-centered modes of studying
- Make learning relevant by incorporating contemporary concepts
Through fun yet meaningful repetition, your students will enjoy practicing their vocabulary words, and they might just ask you for more!
Enjoy, and please leave feedback regarding the ways these worked for you!
