One Way to Teach Vocabulary

The Ladybug Lounge is having a vocabulary linky party! You can go over to join or to find some new ideas. She is asking for suggestions for “one way” to teach vocabulary.

Here’s one of my favorite! February Brainstorm

Tree Maps

These maps help students think critically about a vocabulary word. They are excellent for class discussion

following  individual student brainstorming.

Yesterday Bonnie at Presto Plans shared this link to her colorful Word of the Day card. It is free at Teachers Pay Teachers. I asked her if I could share it here and she graciously agreed. Check her out!

I hope you find something you can use to promote vocabulary discussion and development. Have a great week.
