Vocabulary Game for Reading Wonders Unit 2 weeks 1-5.
For each week post the unit vocabulary words around the room (I place sleeves on the wall or cupboard so I can just slip the words in each week.) ***Another option is to have the students illustrate each word to place in the sleeve.
Run off the lists attached and cut them apart. (The lists are coded. 2-1 means Unit 2 week 1, 2-2 means Unit 2 week 2, etc.)
The students choose a word to stand by/under and declare their word to a classmate.
The teacher (or a student) reads the definition from the cut apart cards. The students wait for the entire definition to be read, and then they try and figure out which word matches the definition. The students who are standing by/under that word are out and they sit down. The last person (or group of people if more than one student is under the word) standing is the winner.
Unit 2 week 5 has 4 regular vocab words and 2 ELL words. (The last 2 words on the right side are the ELL words for each week.)
