Vocabulary Activity Using Pictures and Movement
This is a favorite activity for our scholars! It’s fun and makes vocabulary comprehensible. You can use it along with literature, informational text, or academic vocabulary. It’s extremely helpful when teaching new vocabulary in a second language as well. This activity is based on Robert J. Marzano’s vocabulary instruction and uses movement encouraged by Whole Brain Teaching. A PowerPoint is included so that you can edit and type any vocabulary word that you would like to teach in any subject. A PDF is also included of all vocabulary words in the 2nd grade Journeys text. Instructions on how to use are included in the attachment. This is a fun and incredibly powerful way to introduce vocabulary. Review words daily using the movements that your class has created.
