I need more vocabulary homework ideas!
I am looking for more ideas for my weekly vocabulary homework. I give the homework on Monday and it is due on Friday. There are 3-4 assignmets, one for each night over the 10 words for the week. In class each Monday, we go over the words, spend time finding the definitions, part of speech, 2 synonyms and antonyms; and then when we read the novel, we copy the sentence from the novel onto our index card for each word. Every two weeks we have a voc. quiz (or game that counts as a quiz, like Bingo, or Basketball, or I have who has).
The assignments I have given so far are:
fill-in-the blank sentences (or paragraph)
draw (or print from computer or cut from magazine) pictures
match pictures I provided
split words into syllables
change the parts of speech (check spelling)
I feel like it has become boring; same stuff each week. Anyone have any other ideas for easy homework. I don't want it to be too time consuming, 20 minutes max each night. I am going to try some anagrams next week, and see how that goes. Any suggestions?
