A Fun Way to Review Vocabulary

Vocabulary reviewFor this interactive review, post a list of ten or more vocabulary terms from a current unit of study. On separate sheets of paper, write each term’s definition in the form of a Jeopardy! game show clue. Then post the clues around your room. Next, have each student record the vocabulary terms as questions, leaving space to fill in the matching clues. Set aside time for students to walk around the room, finding and recording the clues that match their terms.

Follow up by reading each clue aloud and having students name the matching terms—as questions, of course!

About Lucy Salerno

I have been a resident of Fairfield for over 25 years and have 30 years’ teaching experience in California K – 6 schools. I have been a music teacher, band and choral director, elementary teacher in grades K – 6, a district level technology coordinator teaching, and an elementary school administrator. In 2011, my most recent school, Scandia Elementary, on Travis Air Force Base, was awarded the California Distinguished School Award for work and programs implemented under my watch. Because of my broad educational background, I know and understand what is needed in today's difficult educational environment. I have taught writing to children in numerous grades as a core subject as well as integrating writing into other curricula areas. I retired a few years ago from the Travis Unified School District, I love working with children, and am now dedicating my services and skills in support of your children. Through love and patience, I hope to understand a child's needs, meet them where they are, build self-confidence and develop a life-long love of learning.
