Mathematical practices in the Math Common Core, as well as the ELA Common Core call for a precise use of vocabulary. It is difficult to incorporate vocabulary into our instruction and to make it engaging! Write the words the children are studying on the handle and the definition in the glass. You can switch it up and give them the definition and have them determine the word. Want to make it even more interesting? Use real magnifying glasses to have them use when working with text.
