While practicing vocabulary, I did a variation of stations. I gave my students different options to practice their vocabulary, and they had to complete four of them. It was another way to differentiate my instruction. Here is a list of the ideas that I used which could also be used independently to practice vocabulary as well:
-Students completed a speaking test with me. I used the book speaking activities for these.
-Students could complete a textbook activity.
-I gave students a chart of different vocabulary words. They had to write five long sentences using their vocabulary. In the chart, they had to create a BINGO with the words that they chose. This way, I could make sure that the students did not pick all of the easy words.
-Students could write and draw a comic strip. They had to include ten vocabulary words.
-Students could write a story. I typically give them a requirement of how many words to use and how many sentences to write as well.
-I give a pair of students two different quizzes. They can quiz their partner, and then they are quizzed by their partner.
