Looking for a quick and easy way to include vocabulary instruction in your curriculum?
These three steps will help you save prep and classroom time, differentiate instruction, and create a vocabulary learning experience students say is addictive and fun.
Here's how to get started:
2. Introduce students to Vocabulary.com. They'll need to create a login, start learning a list, and understand how to get back to list learning when they login again at home.
3. Assign list learning as homework and assess student progress with a weekly quiz. For extra credit, have students focus on the words they're most struggling to learn with word journals, word walls, and pictograms. Read more about project-based vocabulary learning here.
