Help students to practice decoding and recalling the meaning of grade 6 ELA vocabulary words taken from www.flocabulary.com©. The list of words is included in the preview for your convenience. Students place the cards face down on the floor. The first person picks up a card, picks one word from the card and uses it in a sentence (or simply tells the meaning). If the word is not used correctly, the student is given a chance to produce a correct sentence/definition for the second word. The next student chooses a card and explains their word and so on. If a student draws a “Spill” card, they must be given the card that the previous player picked up and share a sentence/definition for the other word on the card. They keep both the Spill card and their friend’s card. For example, Sally chooses a card with the words evening and extra. She provides the definition “night time” for the word evening. Then, John draws a “Spill” card. Sally must give her card to John and he must now explain the word extra. He can say, “I like extra TV time”. I recommend starting with 30 words at a time in small group (make sure that you have taught the words first) and working your way up to a whole group. Students enjoy playing this rendition of SPILL! I hope that you do as well.
