This eight page Word document is designed to motivate students to take on the responsibility for increasing the range of their vocabulary. It is based on a realisation that success for students in school and in life outside of school will be determined by them being able to draw on an extensive vocabulary. All tasks can be completed in any order, at any time and for any subject.
Four word-building tasks are included and are to be completed by students independently;
1. Word-Image Dictionary
2. New Word Wizard
3. Subject Lexicon
4. Word of the Day
A word bank and four on-line vocabulary-building resources are also included which students can draw on for acquiring new words.
