In Social Studies, we have been learning lots of new vocabulary. It is important we learn learn, use, and practice using the vocabulary in our speaking to help us understand what the words mean. Learning vocabulary prior to reading a text will also help with comprehension.
Yesterday we practiced our new vocabulary words by playing the game, head up! Heads Up! is the fun game that Ellen DeGeneres plays on her show — and now we are playing it in our classroom! Students have to guess the vocab word on their head from their classmates clues before the timer runs out!
