Back-to-School Brain Teaser/Vocabulary Builder with Writing


     This back-to-school brain teaser doubles as a vocabulary builder.
Students must interpret definitions and clues to identify words that contain the sound ooh, such as school rule, cool, and classroom. Answers to the first set of forty items are relatively common words, The more difficult second set requires the identification of less familiar words, such as boudoir, fondue, and elusive.
     A companion graphic organizer for writing presents an opportunity for each student to create (on paper) a “Marvelicious, Super Cool School” with his/her choice of transportation, hours, building, decor, rules, teachers, and curriculum–the makings of an attention-getting bulletin board. Six pages, including full answer keys.
