Using Your Resources!

Yesterday and today we have been learning how to use our resources and what the purpose of each one is.  We made a foldable yesterday.  The students had an example of each resource so as we were talking about what they were used for they decided which belonged to which.  Here are several pictures of our foldables in our spiral. (I will add the foldable to my Teacher's Notebook Store.)

Today I gave the students a poem with certain words bolded.  They were to use their resources to find synonyms that would take the place of the word.  They also had to make sure that the replacement word was the correct part of speech and that it made sense. Here a some pictures of the students working in groups...  (I will also add the worksheet to my Teacher's Notebook Store.)

If you have any additional ideas that I could add to the lesson in the future, please let me know! 
 I can't wait... we start our novel study tomorrow and I will be sharing that with you all!!
