How to Teach Vocabulary?

There are a lot of fun ways to teach vocabulary words to kids. A lot of teachers still rely on worksheets, but more creative approaches include crossword puzzles, scavenger hunts, timed dictionary team games, word scrambles, and hangman. Another way to have students learn vocabulary words is to have each student learn a word and then teach it to the rest of the students in their class. Students are more apt to remember something that they have to teach to others!
