Make the Vocabulary Stick!

In a time of ever-increasing ways to access, present and recombine information, it is easy to forget tried and true pre-digital classroom tools. This recent post inspired me to bring back the sticky note!

Students made a peek-a-boo vocabulary list of places using small sticky notes and then timed themselves trying to match them. Then they made sequence schedules of places they were going to go during a trip around the city, narrating them to the rest of the class. Finally, they grouped the places into verb circles–for instance places you could RUN or places you could READ or places you could CLIMB.

It was so much fun that I overlooked the unauthorized use of sticky notes to simulate facial hair.
