Smart Board Vocabulary Spinner


I've been using a spinner with my students during reading to help them learn and practice using the weekly vocabulary words. They uncover a word, spin the spinner and then have to use the word in a sentence or say an antonym or synonym for the word. Anyone else use a spinner during reading?

I imagine students are much more engaged and eager to discuss vocabulary!

Have you been using your vocabulary spinner during whole group or small group? I have seen students using a similar activity during work stations. For mandatory engagement students practice their handwriting after they say their sentence/objective.

Is it possible to post this file so others can use it?
