My students love to use this Vocabulary Word Choice Board in order to practice and learn their vocabulary words. This is a great resource because it can be used in all subject areas that have vocabulary terms (ie: Social Studies, Science, Mathematics, and English Language Arts.
Love this?! Check out my Spelling Word Choice Board
I knew that there had to be a way to motivate my students by spicing up how they practice their vocabulary words. I learned about choice boards while at school and fell in love with the idea. Choice boards are a great way to differentiate student learning, while allowing students ownership to choose activities catered to their "multiple intelligence". Also because many of the activities require students to "create" the students end up using deeper thinking skills and working in the highest level according to Bloom's Taxonomy.
This tic tac toe choice board would work great as vocabulary homework, as part of a center rotation, as a whole class activity, or a review. The printables and worksheets that accompany the choice board can be used with or without the choice board. Some of the activities include:
Flip Book Foldable Dictionary
Sort it: Students must think and 3 categories and sort words accordingly
Create your own crossword puzzle
Make a connection
Antonym and Synonym
Draw a picture to show meaning
Make an acrostic poem
Write a Riddle
Each one of these activities was specifically selected to increase students ability to LEARN, UNDERSTAND, and APPLY meaning of vocabulary terms.
As always I love to hear from you! Let me know what you think, THANKS
