Why work with vocabulary?
- To build knowledge
- To develop more sophisticated and creative writing
- To make it easier to say what you mean
Activity #1: Illustrate the words and meanings in a comic book style. The challenge is to figure out how to represent your word visually. You must use colour as it often represents some part of the word itself.
Activity #2: Use the Word Work chart to expand your understanding of complex vocabulary. Follow the instructions on each panel.
Word work will be shared with your classmates.
