7th 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! Each week you will turn in two vocabulary assignments on Friday. Every other Friday, a vocabulary quiz will be given on the current list.
Pick TWO of the following vocabulary practice assignments to turn in on Friday. You may not pick the same assignments two weeks in a row. ** You may use one sheet of paper for both of your weekly activities, but they need to be clearly labeled.
The assignment title must include the title “Vocab. Item ____” with the exact name of the menu item written out in order to receive credit. You will have four total items turned in with each list, so please include the number of the item you are on.
- Flashcards: Make flashcards for each vocabulary word with the word on one side and a picture and/or definition on the other.
- Stick figures: Make stick figure drawings with dialogue bubbles or captions for each word. The bubble or caption must correctly use the word. Put details in your drawing so it is clear how your pictures relate to your words.
- Letter: You are on vacation! Write a letter to your friend. Use at least five of your vocabulary words correctly as you describe your trip. Remember to say where you are and include the date, greeting (i.e. Dear…), and closing
- Poem: Write a poem or song using five of your vocabulary words, showing that you know the meanings of the words. Underline the vocabulary words used.
- Origins: Using a dictionary or the internet, write the origin of the words. Write the vocabulary word, then the language of origin for each one.
- Story: Put all of the words into an interesting story. Use the words correctly.
- 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.
- Skit: With a partner who is in your class, write and act out a skit that uses five words and helps explain their definitions. Turn in the script with both of your names listed.
- Questions: Write a question (Interrogative Sentence) using each word correctly.
- Find the word in a real-world setting (earn a raffle ticket for this one!) You must document the specific time and place you discovered the word. Give as much detail as possible. Example One: On 9/6/17 at 2:35 p.m., I saw the word “extraordinary” on the sign for “Extraordinary Desserts” in San Marcos. Example Two: I heard the word “establishment” on the 5:00 news on 9/6/17 in the sentence, “These food establishments are closing.”
