Double Meaning Words...CONFUSING?
Let's just say YES! These words can be a bit confusing for everyone or at least make you raise an eyebrow or two.
Let's take a minute and think how confusing double meaning words can be for English Language learners let alone first graders!
This packet can be used for vocabulary development with primary students as well as English Language Learners.
We read the story and stop to discuss each page sharing our thinking and what the words may mean. It is a very funny book so the children love it.
Then I give partners or small groups a word card with a double meaning word and they have to come up with 2 or more meanings for that word. We share our ideas.
The students then brainstorm with their partner or group words that they know that have double meanings. We share out our ideas and and write the words on a classroom chart.
So Here is the Scoop:
★ The students choose a word to fill in the "Can a Watch Watch You?” worksheet.
★ They write the word in the two spaces at the top of the worksheet and then draw a picture to show the two different meanings of the word.
★ They write a sentence for each word to demonstrate their understanding of the chosen vocabulary word. If children are stuck to find a word, I will give them one of the cards included in this packet.
★ The students then make a watch and decorate however they want and then add the eyes.
★ The watch and worksheet can be displayed as shown in the sample on a bulletin board or outside the classroom.
★ The Homonym chart is left up and as children are reading independently, if they find a double meaning word, they may write it on the chart.
for purchasing, downloading, browsing, following and inspiring! I hope this brings a bit of sunshine your way! If you find anything in this packet that needs to be reworked or might work better for your students, please let me know and I will be happy to rework any activity/packet that you have purchased to fit your needs.
