Word Wizard

I believe vocabulary development best happens when new words are encountered in context.  Therefore I hope to encourage students to come across exciting words in their reading and define them on their own.  A list includes  10 words to be located within texts. Students should first “infer” what they think the word means based on context clues. Then they look up the definition that fits their text (in class we learn about and discuss multi-meaning words).  Word Wizard list

    This is a great explanation of what the students are expected to do as Word Wizards, so they can complete their work independently. I like how it will help all the students in the classroom to increase their vocabulary.
