Tip: 4 Examples For

How do I do it?
Make a list of 5-10 topics that you have been studying. Individually or in pairs come up with 4 examples for each topic and record them on a sheet with that same number of large +’s.  For example: 4 examples of freedom; 4 routes of blood; 4 greetings, etc.

Variations & Extensions:
For a quicker review, call on students randomly or volunteers share examples of the topic or concept and the teacher or everyone records the information.  Once students have finished their lists, have them rank-order them with the best examples first.  Use photographs or sketches that can be glued into the correct space for each topic for younger children or children with lower proficiency levels.

Common Core ELA Language Standard 5
