No More Colourful Metaphors

The cost of a listening center, a pocket chart, a ruled tablet, and a Vocabulary Learning Games Library is $379, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

Imagine if your students could express themselves without using colourful metaphors. If they could improve their vocabularies they could express themselves more appropriately. Through the use of the Vocabulary Learning Games Library students will learn to use their vocabulary to express themselves.Students will learn to solve prefix puzzles, match up antonyms, use the dictionary and learn to speak to each other without the colourful metaphors.. Hands-on games build their skills as they play! It's perfect for independent or small group practice, each game targets a specific vocabulary skill?with enough materials for up to 4 players at once?plus a super-simple format that students can pick up and play on their own. These games would encourage our students and would be an assesst in a classroom. Please consider funding this small request.
