Looking for a way to increase student vocabulary and be paperless at the same time? This was a well-used resource in my classroom and student’s vocabulary retention was higher when used daily.
Word of the Day Activity
These activities are used to enhance vocabulary for all students. Teacher or student provides the ‘Word of the Day’ and then students provide a definition, how many syllables, part of speech, synonym, antonym homonym and plurals. Students also illustrate the word of the day and use it in a sentence.
Use the Google Slides for students to fill in their word of the day and complete the following:
The activities could be used for:
They can be a whole class activity, a literacy centre activity, individual or paired.
There is a link on each slide that takes you to an online dictionary so that you can find the syllables, multiple definitions, and part of speech so that you and your students can come up with a "quick definition" together.
