Difficulty Level 2 (Reinforcing / Developing)
Type of Assignment Individual
Often, students are asked to memorize a long list of vocabulary without contextualizing it. Although this approach is usually taken to expedite learning, students typically need to use and think about new terms in context in order to retain the new vocabulary. This storyboard focuses on using common, food vocabulary in relation to appropriate verbs, time expressions, and other useful expressions.
Have students create a spider map storyboard with one word in the middle like “breakfast”, “dinner”, “drinks”, “food”, etc and then build cells around it that relate. Each surrounding cell should focus on a vocabulary word or two that the student has placed in the context of a sentence. Push students to vary their sentences and to use further description like time of day, frequency, or reasons why.
