6th Grade Vocabulary Homework Menu
Our class will focus on a list of vocabulary words for two weeks in a row. This will help to get these words into your everyday vocabulary! You will turn in a vocabulary assignment EVERY FRIDAY! We will have a quiz on the current word list EVERY OTHER FRIDAY!
Week One: Get a new vocabulary word list! Create Flashcards due Friday!
Week Two: Pick one assignment from the following menu and turn it in on Friday! Study your flashcards and your menu item for Friday’s Vocabulary Quiz!
Due First Week of a vocabulary list:
Flashcards: Make flashcards for each vocabulary word with the word on one side and a picture and/or definition on the other.
Second Week: Pick ONE of the following to turn in on Quiz Day!
Picture Dictionary: Create an illustration (picture) dictionary for all of your vocabulary words.
Synonyms: Using a thesaurus, look up and write a synonym for each word. Write the vocabulary word, then the synonym.
Poem: Write a poem or song using at least five of your vocabulary words, showing that you know the meanings of the words. Underline the vocabulary words used.
Story: Put all of the words into an interesting story, using the words correctly. Underline the words.
Crossword: Create a crossword puzzle on graph paper. A crossword is NOT a WORD SEARCH :) Put the words into the crossword, then write the clues for each word.

Questions: Write a question (Interrogative Sentence) using each word correctly, and underline each vocabulary word.
