4 Creative Ways to Use the Vocabulary Placemats:
1. Print the mats on color cardstock and laminate them to be used over and over again. Put the mats in a literacy center for students to think deeply about their vocabulary. Students can complete the mats for each of their vocabulary words, writing with a dry erase marker.
2. Use the mats during guided reading. Choose a few vocabulary words from the book you are reading together and complete the mats as a group during the word work portion of your guided reading lesson.
3. In Science or Social Studies class, assign a list of words for students to complete vocabulary mats for. Assign each student a different word. After the mats are completed allow students to teach their peers the word they studied.
4. Create a class bulletin board with completed vocabulary mats. Make the board interactive by placing blank copies nearby and changing out the words that are displayed each week! As a class, try to use your new words in conversations all week!
