Activity to Try: Vocabahead Word Videos This FREE site offers word definitions for all of the ACT & SAT words in video format. The students see the word, hear a definition of the word and the a picture/image animation of the word is given. Showing 3-5 of these a week at the beginning or end of class as a vocabulary springboard is a low stress/easy to implement activity that requires very little work with big rewards for your students. If you wanted to add a creativity wrinkle.....have the students create their own video and share them with the class (or post them on a web page to share with others)
