    When I taught summer school, I took the novel that we were reading and pulled vocabulary words from a current section. I would write down both the words and the page numbers they could be found on. I asked them to locate the words in the sentences and create synonyms for the words. The kids really got into this when we went over them together and had a class discussion about why their ideas didn't quite work or were great. I'm sure the tickets towards our weekly drawing was helpful to motivate.
