Editable Templates for Interactive VocAPPulary™ (Smartphone Vocabulary Activities)
This creative resource is a simple, yet effective way for students to learn vocabulary on a specific topic! The perfect tool for learning and memorizing vocabulary words!
Students will design and illustrate an app for each vocabulary term after defining them. So easy to put together, just cut and paste! (instructions included)
-This editable file has 4 different size templates (6, 9, 12, or 16 apps in each smartphone) The larger apps are perfect for small hands! Designed for both younger and older students!
What is unique about Interactive VocAPPulary™ is that it combines the use of illustration, word walls, and flashcards in a trendy, student-friendly package.
Creating drawings for each vocabulary word is not only creative fun, but it also allows students to create a visual that they can reference when trying to memorize a new word or concept. The innovative process of coming up with an image that represents the word, will further ingrain that concept into the student’s mind.
Flashcards have been around forever! That’s because they work! They are so effective because they utilize active recall. The repetitive process of actively trying to remember a definition allows information to move from short term memory to long term memory. Eventually, you can close your eyes and picture the words without having to flip the flashcard over to view the definition or answer. Interactive VocAPPulary™ is, well, interactive! Students can flip the image up to reveal a definition. Each “Smartphone” has a theme or unit – such as “Ecosystems” -has up to 16 flashcards on each unit!
Interactive VocAPPulary™ is essentially a hand-held word wall! Students can group that information together, decorating their Smartphones and viewing the images and vocabulary words together. It takes the fun concept of Smartphones and has students designing their own unique apps. Each “Smartphone” has a theme or unit – such as “Ecosystems” -with up to 16 apps reflecting that theme.
Interactive VocAPPulary™ combines the very best strategies for learning vocabulary and presents them in a fun way your students will simply LOVE! They can put their Smartphones on a ring, combining the units for the entire year!
