Sometimes our students have trouble retaining new vocabulary, especially when the time between lesson is a week or more. In order to combat this and to give learners something to refer back to, I have prepared a “Picture Dictionary” worksheet to use in conjunction with our many fine flashcards.
The worksheet consists of eight blank squares with spaces underneath. Students draw the object on the flashcard in the square, then write the name of that object in the space underneath. Simple, right? Double checked for spelling, the worksheet becomes a resource for future lessons, especially those involving writing.
I have been using this worksheet along with the Shapes Flashcards from the previous post to good effect in my elementary school classrooms. It’s especially nice for classes that don’t do well with more energetic activities. Give it a try!
