Fill in the Steps

Introduce your students to the vocabulary words from the lesson. Share your "teacher" definitions, which are more technical. Using the projector, display the Inspiration web, and ask for your students to tell you the definitions in their own words. Upload pictures that will help them understand the words better. Ask for synonyms, antonyms, homophones, etc. Play the Wordstash games/activities for practice.
