LNS Journal - Post 7 - WIN Time and Tween Tribune

A teacher contacted me about utilizing her WIN time with her students to access informational text and work on vocabulary and I thought I'd share what we came up with.  Using Tween Tribune, students compare the vocabulary used in an article at different Lexiles.  This allows students to generate a vocab list, which they can, then use Flippity to create online flashcards.  Another option is to have the students create Crosswords using crosswordlabs.com (log in not required).
Both the Flippity flashcards and the crosswords can be posted by the students in Classroom to make them available to the other students in the class.  This is a great way to get students reading more than one version of an article, as well as expanding their vocabulary both through their own reading as well as through the vocab shared by other students!!
