Valentines week is really almost over but there is still more. Don’t miss anything by signing up for the newsletter! I know you’re busy – that’s why I’ll send all the links straight to your inbox!
Tearable posters are fun. We don’t often have the chance to grab a number (I don’t often have an interest in the posters) but a few weeks ago we got one. And they begged me to take ALL of the strips. I obviously didn’t, but the idea stuck with me. I just needed a good excuse to make a tearable poster. Suddenly the idea of vocab and tearable posters smashed into one and I knew we had to try it.
And you cannot have tearable vocabulary words without a journal, right? I wanted something simple enough that I could have Logi-Bear (5) do but also that Baloo (10) could get some use out of. So the journal has a place for a definition, a sentence, synonyms, antonyms, and a picture. I don’t expect Logi-Bear to fill all of it in, obviously. And I provided some simpler words especially for him.
How to Use the Valentines Tearable Vocabulary
Encourage them to pick a word and tear it off the sheet. Glue or stable it to the booklet. They can use a dictionary or the internet for help with the definition (but they should try to put it in their words and not just copy from the dictionary).
Using it in a sentence is probably the most important part. It will show if they truly understand the meaning of the word or not.
