Polar Board Pete Multiple Meaning Words and a **FREE** Therapy Idea
A lot of my older students are working on multiple meaning words so I decided to post an activity to target this area... Oh, and I was hooked on the cute polar bear clip art the moment I saw it! I bring you - Multiple Meaning Words with Polar Bear Pete, which includes 20 pairs for a total of 40 cards. To Play: Students select one Pete the Polar Bear card and state the word that is being defined. Then, they must find the cave card with a different meaning for the same word. Find a match and take another turn. The student with the most matches at the end of the game wins! Also included with this download is a game board for another variation of the activity! here In addition to posting various materials, I will always try to also include one completely free idea that only takes a little bit of craftiness! I co-teach 2 classroom lessons per week with my friend, Sara, who is an amazing 4th grade teacher. This week we were targeting academic vocab and since the holidays are right around the corner, we decided to create some vocab lights to decorate her tree. We used our Ellison machine to cut out light bulbs and wrote a vocabulary word on the metal part of the light bulb and definitions on the actual bulb part.
