The students’ next homework assignment is to make a WANTED poster for one of their WordMasters Challenge words. Each student selected 1 or 2 words to make posters for our classroom. The students were given a template to use, but they are welcome to make their own poster on another sheet of paper as long as they include all of the same information.

3rd Grade Homework

WordMasters Challenge Homework - Due October 23

Choose approximately 10 words from your Meet 1 list that are least familiar/most challenging to you. Remember that some words have multiple meanings and parts of speech. Do an activity that will help you learn those words. Some suggestions include:

* Make flash cards with the words on one side and the definitions on the other.
* Write a story with the words. Put the words in sentences that have context clues about their meanings.
* Draw a picture to represent each word’s meaning.
* Create a crossword puzzle for a friend to solve. Use the definitions as clues.
* Any other activity you can think of that would help you learn more about your words.
