On yesterday, my students listed three new vocabulary words they learned from reading Bud, Not Buddy. Today, I have them to select one of those words and complete a vocabulary map (attachment may be used as a handout or SmartBoard resource). I explain to them that they will list the vocabulary word in the first box. In the 2nd box, draw a picture to illustrate the word; in the 3rd box, tell what part of speech the word is and list a synonym and/or antonym if the word has one. Finally, use the word correctly in a sentence in the last box. I further explain to them that today we will continue to build upon our Bud, Not Buddy unit by playing a Jeopardy-inspired game about the book Bud, Not Buddy.
My scholars are ready to play Bud, Not Buddy Jeopardy! I divide them into 2 separate teams and explain to them that they will have to cite evidence from the book Bud, Not Buddy to answer text-based questions for chapters 9 - 19. To go through the questions in a logical order, we'll begin on the left and select a square anywhere in the first column. When we finish that column, we'll go to the next column. I remind them that they must respond in the form of the question for the answer. The winning team will receive treats! (Click here to play Bud, Not Buddy Jeopardy (Chapters 9 - 19)).
I know my scholars enjoyed playing Jeopardy! Engaging games help to reinforce content of lessons. To close our lesson, I have them to take five minutes to write a journal entry about three things they have learned from reading Bud, Not Buddy.
