Last week, we were working on multiple meaning words. By the fifth grade, I feel that most students know many of these words but need a little refresher!
To refresh them, I created a simple center activity for practicing and realizing various multiple meaning words. At one of their reading centers, I had eighteen word cards that each had multiple meanings. On the recording page, they were to select four words and illustrate both meanings.
We discussed that often times, multiple meaning words have a "noun meaning" and a "verb meaning" such as the work duck. My kids this year LOVE to draw. Anytime I can involve illustrating their thinking, they are IN! :)
