Images and vocabulary

Since I’m all into using the visual in the classroom, I had my students create a dictionary for The Canterbury Tales. The catch? They had to draw an image that related to the word — anything to help remind them of the definition.

Has it worked? I’d say definitely…and I say this because when I make them explain the word to me (such as through their sentence work), most of them got the words right on.

Interesting, hm? 🙂
