Vocabulary with Voki
Mrs. Shepherd 8:28:00 PM
My students and I are currently reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume. This Thursday one of our mini-lessons was focused on vocabulary. Students were put into groups of five and worked collaboratively on one vocabulary word . Students in each group were numbered off and given a specific job such as:
1- Write the word and find the part of speech
2- Find and write the definition
3- Find the word in our chapter book and write the page number
4- Find the sentence the word was used in and write the sentence
5- Use a Thesaurus to find a synonym and an antonym for the word
Students compiled their results into a bubble map on a sheet of computer paper.
Then today I introduced students to Voki.
Students came to the front of the room in their groups and used our class mic to record their vocabulary word.
Here are the avatars the students created:
