You will need:
Reproducibles (scroll down to download them)
What to do:
Vocabulary webs work well with older children but we can make some changes to fit our little kids.
For example if you are teaching vocabulary related to the senses, for instance, buy some pumpkins with different shapes.
Make a big chart with the drawing of a pumpkin in the centre. Explore the pumpkins using the five senses.
Draw 5 lines, one for the sense of hearing, one for tasting, one for smelling, one for seeing, and one for touching. Take notes about what your children say.
You can make a individual book with 5 pages and a cover. Write sentences “I can smell a pumpkin “ “I can taste a pumpkin”.. etc so children can draw their own experiences.

I am a certified teacher; however, I took a job in Kindergarten this past year as a para. We worked with web brainstorming before our writing, but we did it as a class on the board. Many struggled to write because it was not at their desks. In addition, every student was not participating. I really appreciate you sharing your idea. I think it would be a great addition to our classroom next year in our writing center!
