Research has proven that assigning vocabulary lists is less effective than we think. In order for students to understand words and their relationships with each other, they need to interact with them more. Dissect them.
This lesson includes a Word Web that can be used to study words more thoroughly. Students given a word or choosing a word can then use the graphic organizer to understand the etymology, part of speech, synonyms/antonyms, roots and affixes, derivations, and connotation of the words--all while reinforcing reference material skills!
THIS PRODUCT INCLUDES:
*A graphic organizer that helps students break down different parts and meanings of the word; can be used in notebooks, or as weekly assignments or mini lessons
*A completed graphic organizer for modeling/teaching/reference
*A PDF and .PPTX version of notes that can be shown to students while learning to use the web; includes notes, examples, and sample dictionary entries
This lesson is also wonderful for bell ringers, warm ups, test prep, review, remediation, or mini lessons.
