Get your kids excited about ELA Test Prep or any vocabulary review you choose with this March Madness Playoff Bracket!
Each student receives their own bracket to decide which vocabulary words will make it to the final four.
Each week in March, students will use the words in their speech and their writing. When they appropriately use a word, they can put a tally on your vocabulary wall, or for more interaction, they can fill out a post-it note citing the sentence they used the word in. A peer or family member can initial to verify.
At the end of the week, your vocabulary wall will show which words out of each pair were used the most. Those words will be reused for next week's word battle. (32 words will be reduced to 16, 16 words to 8, 8 words to 4, and the final week you will determine the final four. You can split the week into 2 parts or play an extra week to determine the winner.)
You can choose to reward students with accurate brackets for a fun twist!
