Hey everyone, I've always been interested in this style of teaching, but I haven't really looked into it in depth. All I know is that it is really hands-on and student-guided. Anyway, I am currently tutoring a child, who is entering 1st grade, in vocabulary. With it being so specific, I've been racking my brain to come up with exciting and fun lessons for her. Currently, I've been reading her books with targeted tier 2 words, then creating "maps" out of these words that include the definition, a picture, a sentence, and synonyms. I know this technique can only go so far before I start to bore her. So, I am coming to you all for some ideas, especially how it may be approached through this type of teaching philosophy. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you!
