Product Description

Need a way for students to make meaningful associations with vocabulary words? Try using picture associations. This resource contains three different picture association activities to engage students in divergent thinking.

Included, you will find:

1. Symbolic Coloring Picture Associations

With this activity, students will study a cartoon image, identify a word from their list that relates, and then choose a color that symbolizes the word. Finally, students will color the image, making sure to use the symbolic color, and they will write explanations for their associations. Students will also determine whether the image implies a positive or negative connotation of the word. Three examples are included.

2. Picture Association Sentences

This activity is the most traditional of the three. Students will be able to study task cards that each feature one image in order to make a connection with a vocab word. Then, they will write or orally discuss a sentence that includes that vocabulary word. I suggest using these as station activities, quick warm ups, or exit slips. Students can share with small groups or with the class. I do not suggest collecting and grading them.

3. Inkblot Picture Associations

Inkblots are the most divergent picture association activity in this resource. If possible, print them in color because students may make different associations if they can see the color in some of the images than with grayscale. Students will make a connection and explain their rationale. Three examples are included.

These activities are included in both PDF and PPT format. The PPT is editable in that you can add text boxes. Also, I've included a blank template for each activity. You can add your own images in PPT.

These picture association activities are perfect for middle and high school classrooms and work well with any Tier 2 word list. Students need to interact with their vocabulary words in meaningful ways in order to internalize them, recognize them in reading, and use them in speaking and writing.

Best of all, these resources will engage students, and you can use them to get students up and moving as well as learning in social formats.

If you need more brain-based, differentiated vocabulary activities, try these.
