Expand your students’ vocabulary! Improve their ability to work together successfully. The Vocabulary Spinner leads small teams through an effective cooperative process for learning new vocabulary words. Students each write down the vocabulary word and think about the meaning. The spinner randomly selects a student to look up the word in a dictionary. Everyone writes the dictionary definition. After think time, another student is randomly selected to paraphrase the definition. Finally, everyone thinks about how to use the word in a sentence, writes their sentences and then one student, selected by the spinner, shares his or her sentence with the team. Use this spinner to make vocabulary fun and involving for ALL students. With the Vocabulary Spinner, your students learn a lot more than just words!
