Vocabulary words will "stick" in children's brains with these strategies. They're also good for learning a second language.

When introducing new words invite children to dramatize what the words mean. They can dramatize with their faces, hands, or whole bodies.



Children pantomime vocabulary words as classmates try and guess their word.

Sign Language
Learn how to sign vocabulary words by looking at videos online.

Tri-fold a sheet of paper to make a brochure. Children write the word on the top section, the definition in the middle, and illustrate it or write a sentence in the bottom section.


Antonym Actions
Let children act out words that are opposite what the teacher says. For example:
     Teacher says “hot.”
     Children respond by shivering.
     Teacher says “loud.”
     Children respond by being quiet.

Call out synonyms for the students to interpret. For example:

     Happy – delighted – joyful - gay - pleased

     Angry – mad – furious
     Sleepy – tired – fatigued
