    I use the overhead to write the words, and we discuss their meaning. Then the kids get out their small chalkboards. I give clues that go with the words, and the kids choose which is the correct word and write it on their chalkboards. They hold up their boards and I can tell immediately who has the right word. I like it because it not only helps them learn the vocabulary, but it helps them write the correct spelling as they are introduced to the word. My first graders love to write on their chalkboards, so they love it. I don't know if it would have the same appeal to older kids.
