Inspiring Vocabulary

This is a great idea to use to develop student vocabulary. Give the class a small passage that is missing words. Each student is asked to complete the passage with words that s/he thinks will make the passage more interesting to read. After each student has completed finding words to insert into the missing parts of the text, the students read the passage aloud to see who has created the most interesting and descriptive passage. Words must make sense in the context of the passage and must be “G” rated. This is a fun activity that can help students reflect on both passage meaning as well as more interesting vocabulary.
