(ON SALE TIL MIDNIGHT....hint, hint! :)My hope was a "GIANT WORD WALL" just because....it's more fun!!
My suggestion today is this...
MAKE IT A MATCHING GAME using YARN to attach term to definition---and don't even bother with cutting out terms...unless you want them separate!
- I also printed mine out on colored paper and laminated them (imagine that)!
- Straight across the top of my wall are the literary terms.
- Underneath and staggered are the definitions all in a random arrangement!
Students will take turns reading definitions, deciding the right term then attaching yarn from definition to term!! The end result? A funny web of learning!!! just undo the yarn end from the term or the definition (not both) and you are set for the next class!! SUPERB TEST PREP ACTIVITY!! Yes, I'm uber excited about it right now----I could possibly think later that I overreacted, but...just go with it! Below is a pic of my wall---didn't clean up before :) & I haven' t yet attached yarn to one of the two parts of matching elements!
