I saw them on Pinterest - they're Vocabulators from Fourth Grade Frolics
Check out her post to see how to make them and what she uses them for!
I think I want to try making these out of Crystal Light plastic containers to make mini ones. Do you think that would work?
I want to make containers with words grouped for a specific reason, like root words, or prefixes. Then the kids would have to look up the meanings of the words they found to figure out wht they all have in common. For example, if the words
were in one vocabulator together, the kids would look up the meanings and find the similarity. Astro = star.
You can grab this free word study web to use when modifying base words (or building words out of prefixes or suffixes, as well) at TPT.
