Match made in heaven?! Possibly. I, much like my students, am obsessed with zombies. I look forward to the Walking Dead each week, and I habitually watch episodes on Hulu to get my fix.
Playing on what my students (and myself) are interested in, I created a zombie workstation! Vocabulary is a huge struggle in my class, and we do whatever we can to practice and understand new words. I tell them everyday the only way to grow their vocabulary is to read. Plain and simple.
This station includes 4 different activities which are tried and true. Task Cards, a no brainer. A Matching game; match the word with the 2 different definitions. A Scoot! game (one of our favorites) Tape the cards to their desks & let them scoot to the next desk each couple of minutes.....great for those kinetic learners. Lastly, a gallery walk. Tape the cards around the room & in the hallway; your students can walk around and show what they know!
It's Saturday & I'm feeling saucy! Click on the pic below for a freebie version of this station. If you like-y, swing by my TPT for the full version.
