As educators, we know and understand the importance of vocabulary instruction, but we don’t always have the time to make our vocabulary activities engaging and meaningful. Sometimes it may be because of time constraints, other times, it may be that we are just having a hard time coming up with new activities. So, for today’s Word Work Wednesday, I will share an activity to add to your collection in order to help eliminate at least one of the obstacles. I hope you enjoy!

4 Clues (…or 3or 5…depending on your preference)

  • Students will write four clues for each assigned vocabulary word, without using the word in the clue.
  • Clues may include:
    *Student-created definitions
    *Detailed illustrations
    *Descriptions
    *Examples
    *Metaphors
  • To extend the activity, have students trade their clues with a partner and have them play a game trying to figure out the vocabulary word based on the clues provided.
