    Well, we use a basal reader and so it is the vocabulary words for the story of the week. There is usually six words and it just seems so boring. This is some of what I do:
    1. Write the word on the board and have the children "guess" its meaning and then write the meaning after all the guesses are in.
    2. I have written the words on a piece of sentence strip then written the definitions on another sentence strip. I pass them out to individual children and let them come to the front of the room and "match" words and defintions.

    These have been okay but I just know there has to be something else I can do????????? Isn't there?
    Any help is much appreciated!!!
