My students submit a weekly list of words that they encounter for which they do not know the meanings. (We call this their Personal Vocabulary assignment.) I use their contributions to create vocabulary activities. Using Scholastic’s Word Wizard, we can enter groups of their words into My Mini-Dictonary Maker to get the definitions, see which of the words have multiple meanings and create a personalized mini-dictionary for them.

Please share ways that you use this site with your students!
