Why work with vocabulary?

  • To build knowledge
  • To develop more sophisticated and creative writing
  • To make it easier to say what you mean

Activity Choices:

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.
