Product Description
Tired of doing the same old thing with teaching vocabulary? If your students are complaining about the relentless vocabulary sentences and predictable vocab quizzes, why not change it up for a few weeks? Let the students "Test the Teacher" with VOCAB CHALLENGE!!! Our students like to think we teachers know all the words in the world, but we really don't! Model for them how you divine the meanings of unfamiliar words with this fun and competitive activity! In Vocab Challenge, students read and locate words they think may stump the teacher. Bringing the word, the sentence, and the source information to class, they give you an opportunity to show them how you figure out what strange words mean! Tons of positive reinforcement are available as kids realize teachers have to struggle and learn too! The class works as a whole to meet a predetermined number of points in their quest to earn a reward of your choosing! (Maybe you make a terrific batch of cookies or are a whiz with decorating cupcakes?!) Adjustable for any content area and for students of all ability levels, this product includes complete directions and rules for scoring along with the Vocab Challenge sheet to be completed by the students. This is my own version of a game my student teacher and I played with our intermediate students, so it is not thoroughly original; however, I have no idea where the basic idea originated.
