Howell Jigsaw

Vocabulary Jigsaw as Learning Tool

January 8, 2019

Valley Stream Union Free School District Thirteen’s Howell Road Elementary School’s ENL students recently participated in a vocabulary jigsaw activity to develop their literary skills in a collaborative way. Students were put into groups and each assigned an individual word to define, identify a synonym, draw a descriptive picture and use the word in a sentence.

Following successful completion of these four tasks, the students taught their fellow group members their mastered vocabulary word and the four corresponding elements. The District continues to provide ENL students in each of the District’s four schools opportunities to learn the English language in a fun and engaging way.
