Fun Ways To Help Students Learn Vocabulary

Home » Teacher Tips » Fun Ways To Help Students Learn Vocabulary

There are lots of different ways in which to help children learn vocabulary. For starters, having kids look up words in a dictionary of course, is an important skill — but not all that exciting. One way would be to let students draw a picture, or make a collage to illustrate the word.

Incorporate a game like charades to guess a word and explain its meaning. Another cool way would be to incorporate music or creative writing into your word study lessons. Students could create poetry, a rap or a song about the words and their meanings.

Having students create a vocabulary photo album is a great idea, as well as having students participate in a vocabulary relay. Setting up a scavenger hunt in the classroom is also lots of fun. Lastly, having your kiddos create linear arrays is super cool.

Ultimately, this is just the tip of the iceberg as we are limited by our imagination to make learning new vocabulary fun and exciting. I’d love to hear about some of your awesome ideas!
