Before starting any unit in any subject area, using this form to preview what students actually know about words (i.e. their definition and ability to use in a sentence) can inform how much teaching I need to do to cover those words. Even TAG kids who might have heard the word before may not know what the words mean, and just skim over them. It takes on average 7 repetitions before a word is automatic, when a student not only knows what it means, but can use it in context). This is the first way for the kids to meet the words! :) After that, the possibilities are endless to practice: word scrambles, cloze sentences, crosswords, matching games... Enjoy!
