This is a set of 11 different vocabulary activities and games for the story Leonardo's Horse, which is Unit 3, Story 2 from a 5th Grade Reading Series.
The activities have been developed to help students make real, authentic connections with words that go beyond basic "recalling the definitions." Some games are modeled after real board games (Scattergories and Apples to Apples). You will need an Apples to Apples game to do that activity. Otherwise, all of the rest of the activities are prepared for you. There is also an explanation of all activities.
Included in this set are:
- Cover Page
- Directions for all 11 activities
- 11 activities/game cards (Applause Applause, Apples to Apples, Cloze Passages, Connect Two, Examples vs. Non-Examples, I Have Who Has? Game, I'd Rather, Idea Completions, Keyword Method, Scattergories, Swat-a-Word, Use the Clues Teacher and Student Pages, and Word Associations)
My students actually look forward to vocabulary instruction!!!! These activities also make great literacy center activities also.
