Activity
Pack the Paper
Flashcard Flashmob
Mastervocab Theater
DaVinci’s DaDrawings

1.       Pack the Paper
DIRECTIONS: Write the words and definitions of the words on a sheet of paper. Your goal: Fit the most word/definition and stem/definition combos as you can on a single sheet of paper.   Hand in to Mrs. Ripp to show you are ready to do the re-take.
Tip: Start with the words/stems you don’t know that well.

2.      Flashcard Flashmob
DIRECTIONS: Work with a partner to study your flashcards. First, you should ask them all of the definitions. Then switch. When you’re finished, find a new partner and repeat. Show Mrs. Ripp your flashcards to show you are ready to do the re-take.
Tip: If you find yourself getting stuck on a word/stem, ask your partner to ask you that word/stem more often than the others. For example, if you’re stuck on “inter”, they’d ask 1) inter 2) com 3) stell 4) inter 5) condescend 6) inter

3.     Mastervocab Theater
DIRECTIONS: In groups of 2-3, plan a way to act out the words and stems. Be sure to include everyone in the group.  This will be acted out in class to show you are ready to do the re-take.
Tip: If you’re stuck on how to act out a word, check the blue vocab packets in the back for some sentence tips!

4.      DaVinci’s Drawings
DIRECTIONS: Draw pictures that illustrate the definitions of the words and stems. Use scratch paper, and try to draw pictures in sizes that can conserve paper.  Hand in to Mrs. Ripp to show you are ready to do the re-take.

Tip: Start with the words/stems you don’t know that well.
