Using Buckets and Top Down Webs for Review

I attended a workshop in August on using Keys to Literacy in my classroom, and I decided to put some of the techniques to work in my 8th grade classes.

First, each student received 3 review vocabulary words to sort into topic "buckets:"


Then, we created this Top Down Web as a class using the words in each bucket:


Both activities went really well! Sorting and making the web got the kids out of their seats and helped them focus on each vocabulary topic. It also helped to identify some review words that students were having the most trouble remembering. I am looking forward to using this technique again in the future.
