(A Flipped Classroom Approach)
Here’s How I do it!
Step #1: Provide students with Frayer Model for Vocabulary and TWO vocabulary words for the week. Students write ONE word on the front and ONE word on the back.
1. Can you GUESS the meaning of the word using the context clues in the video?
Step #2: Share a video for each vocabulary word via Google Classroom (or other host such as Schoology or Edmodo) for each vocabulary word. The videos should contain the keyword, a definition, a sentence and example(s) of the word in action.
Step #4: In class, discuss/share student work on the Frayer Model and then participate in a class game featuring the Word of the Day.

Students receive a blank BINGO card (see above). Students work with dictionaries and a thesaurus to identify as many words as possible that are related to Ecstatic. They write each word they find in the column it fits in based on the first letter. Antagonistic (A) goes in the first column. Students need to attempt to find words that span the alphabet as some words will only fit in the A – E row, F – J row, etc.
Example: If the word your class is working on is LOQUACIOUS.
Give students 10 minutes to search Thesaurus with a partner to find as many related words to the keyword of the day. Have them collect AS MANY WORDS on a looseleaf piece of paper as possible. After time is called, choose a list and read each word. If another team has the same word, BOTH teams cross the word off. Continue. When all words have been share (and many crossed off) the team that has the most words remaining that relate correctly to the key word of the day is the winning team.
Provide each student with a blank piece of paper. Encourage them to design a superhero with the characteristics that match the WOW word of the week.
Example: Diligentman (Diligentwoman)
Students will draw an image of a super hero that is diligent and all of the items he/she has and characteristics they possess that represent the word diligent
