A Sports Dictionary
(visual/kinesthetic)

Remind children that some words have two separate entries in the dictionary. Provide children with large paper. Have them each make a page for a sports dictionary of homographs. On the top half of the page, have children list the word, write a sentence using the sports-related meaning of the word, and draw a picture. On the bottom, have them do the same for another meaning of the word. Children can bind their pages together to make a class Big Book.
