Have you ever heard your students using a word and you have absolutely no idea what it means? Does it make you feel a little bit like Mrs. Granger from Andrew Clements’ book “Frindle” and ready to give detentions every time you hear the word “bussin’” one more time?
You are absolutely not alone. Keeping up with the Tik-Tok language of the 21st century is difficult for even the youngest teachers in the field.
This resource is here to help with that while working on key ELA tools your students will need.
Each worksheet has a space for a student to pick whatever word they have been using over and over again. Then, they are expected to answer questions defining and explaining that word.
The first version is just for students, but the second version is there to create a classroom dictionary of all the ”trendy terms” of the year for both you and the students. Or, you can use the third version for students to make their own booklet!
Use these as a class project, alongside a unit on dictionary skills, or fast finisher work!
