At the copier this morning, I found an old vocabulary graphic organizer. It was that one with “definition, picture example, and non-example”. I had forgotten about this type of organizer and tried it out with my class this morning. They loved it!
We used the graphic organizer for one of our spelling words (of the students’ choice).
My more independent students were able to look up the definitions on the computer and complete the paper themselves.
My newer students and I worked on the sheet together…it was a simple and great vocabulary activity for everyone!
The only problem? The paper was a little (ok a lot) outdated and hard-to-read.
So I whipped up my own version this evening. I added some different categories, such as “suffixes” so we can write the different tenses/forms of the word. I also added a “related words” category, since I know this is something that will be very useful for my ELL students. I hope it is something you might be able to use as well!
