New Vocabulary List!

Here’s our new Vocabulary List!

Vocabulary List #3 ~ The Fiery Trial / Division and Reunion


Word Maps / Flashcards / Sketchnotes

Whatever format you choose to use, you must create handwritten word maps, flashcards, or sketchnotes that include:

  • words
  • parts of speech
  • definitions
  • synonyms and antonyms
  • original sentences that shows you know what the word means and how to use it properly
  • sketches that show the meaning in pictures, not words – the sketch must show meaning without the sentence next to it

Here is our template for Word Maps.
