Rigorous vocabulary for your secondary students to help prepare them for college are made into paper bracelets. Print, cut, and tape them on students’ wrists. Individuals - and everyone they encounter- will be reminded to study this word.
Add a bit of whimsy to education! Don’t think for a minute that your secondary students are too "mature" for paper bracelets; they LOVE them!
Use these Word of the Day bracelets to help reinforce long-term learning. (Eradicate the “remember-for-the-test, then forget” strategy.)
Students will be reminded of their vocabulary word throughout the day.
Assign one word to each student per period- and watch them find students with the same word (from your other classes) throughout the day.
Watch students between classes discuss each other’s words. Hooray!
These bracelets create a ripple effect, too. Students report that family members learn their words, too (especially their younger siblings– your future students)!
At the end of the week, ask students to use the bracelets to create links for a Vocabulary Word Chain in their locker for year-long reinforcement.
Included are “Don’t Forget,” “Test Tomorrow,” and a few blank bracelets for you to customize as study reminders for students (and parents)!
