Drawing Different Meanings

Ask students to choose a spelling word that has multiple meanings from this unit or from an earlier unit. (Examples: grave, capital, triple, column, bail, desert, operate, nursery) Then tell them to draw two or more illustrations, each representing a different meaning of the word. Students will give their drawings to a classmate, together with a list of the word's meanings, and the classmate will use the word to write captions.
