This is our May Word of the Day Calendar and I have my kiddos to circle 5 of the words that go together and they write a story using those words. It has really helped to improve vocabulary development as well as writing skills.
These are a few of the great writings that they did using the words. Some of my kiddos actually wanted to use more than 5 words. Yay!!
This little ELL student couldn't write a complete sentence in September, now look at him go!
We had fun playing our Quest Game.
These are the cards included. You can use them in a center or you can use them in the game. I chose to just use the list of words and recording sheet in the class version
I always let my kiddos study their calendar words before we play our Bounce Game. The Bounce Game has questions about their calendar words for the month. My students love this game!
This is my ELL teacher listening to one of my kiddos read her question card for her team.
We also have used the cards as a read around the room activity. My ELL teacher said, "Our Word of the Day Calendar Words and Word of the Day Products have really improved her ELL student's vocabulary development. All of our WIDA scores for our ELL students improved this year! Yay!!
These are our Word of the Day Products we use each month. We have all of them on sale for a $1 today June 13 and June 14 as a Birthday Bash for Brittany! All ya'll have to do is go to our store and look under custom categories and look under Word of the Day to see all of them.
We hope ya'll enjoyed FUN FRIDAY and will come back Sunday for our Behavior post.
Have a great weekend!
