How do you feel about virtual word walls? We know that having students copy down definitions isn't the best practice. What if, instead, we let students create GIF animations for vocabulary? If every student had a different vocabulary word, you could end up with some powerful animations of an entire word wall! Plus, it allows for students to use creativity and demonstrate deep understanding in order to animate a vocab word.
Websites like Padlet or Linoit are perfect for hosting them! Take a look at our example here!
