Making greeting cards takes on a whole new meaning when multiple-meaning words are involved! Discuss with students possible ways that a multiple-meaning word could cause a misunderstanding. Allow volunteers to share their experiences. Next, explain that each child will create a greeting card that helps someone apologize for a misunderstanding caused by a multiple-meaning word. Then direct each student to select a multiple-meaning word (see the list) and use it to write a message inside a folded sheet of white paper. Then have her decorate the card using crayons or markers. Who knows? Card companies might try to hire some of your card creators!
