StarrMatica’s K-2 Lesson on Vocabulary launched last week. The lesson focuses on helping students to understand synonyms, antonyms, compound words, contractions, homonyms, homophones, and homographs. Students learn about each vocabulary type through camping adventures with Sean and Jess. A few highlights of the lesson include:
Teacher Tool: Vocabulary Wheels–Challenge your students to find pairs of compound words, contractions, synonyms, antonyms, homonyms, homophones, and homographs.
Vocabulary Baseball–Knowledge of homonyms, homophones, and homographs is put to the test in this one player or two player matching game.
Campfire Compound Words–Students select words that can be used to create the compound words pictured.
