Multiple Meaning Words Movie Craftivity

This is the first year that I have used an interactive reading notebook and I am absolutely loving it! My students are too! Even better is that I have found so many great ideas out there in the blogging world, Pinterest, and on TpT. One of those great activities is from Deb at Crafting Connections! I got to team up with her for her Classroom Tested, Teacher and Student Approved series to share about her Multiple Meaning Words Movie Craftivity

Multiple Meaning Words Movie Craftivity- Matching Sentence

Our word study topic and spelling words this week were multiple meaning words so this was the perfect activity to use! We started out by defining multiple meaning words and creating an anchor chart of multiple meaning words that the students came up with (I forgot to take a picture of course ugh!).

Deb's activity could be used in many different ways. The first part of her activity is a worksheet that has 12 different sentences with  a base sentence and then three different sentences that use the same multiple meaning word but in a different way. The students then have to figure out which extra sentence matches the meaning of the multiple meaning word in the base sentence. The students then use the craftivity to illustrate the different meanings of the multiple meaning word. 

I used the activity a little bit differently and had the students use their multiple meaning spelling words. I had the students pick one of their spelling words to write in the camera and then on the filmstrip they used the word in a sentence and then illustrated the meaning of the word next to it.  

Here are some pictures of the craftivity:

Deb is going to give away a copy of this craftivity to one of my followers, so stop by her blog and enter!
