That's a toughy. We're doing close reads and that's where I'm getting a lot of vocab instruction in--probably like you. I'm wondering what could be done with those 3-5 words each week...act them out? Find pictures in magazines that depict them? Illustrate them? Ugh. Doesn't sound all that enticing.

We've been using the book Word Nerds in our school for a building improvement goal. I'm not on that particular team (and honestly haven't read the book!). The team has given vocab instruction ideas at staff meetings but nothing that has jumped out as kinder appropriate and nothing that seemed to fit with a center.

Sorry I can't be of more help!
