Having a Ball with Vocabulary

I love words... I love to expose students to new and exciting words but how to make it fun? Well I thought having a gumball machine to collect our words during read a louds just might work. As we are reading our story 2 of the students are in charge of looking up interesting or unfamiliar words in the dictionary. After they share the meaning of the word with the class, they write the word on a gumball with its definition and add it to our machine. The students are able to practice their dictionary skills as an added bonus! Our goal is to fill up our machine !!

Imagine the possibilities!!
