Apologies to Lady Gaga
Our district has put a focus on vocabulary development this year using the Building Academic Vocabulary strategies of Marzano and Pickering. With the school year winding down, I thought it would be fun to see just how well my students have all retained their vocabulary from the year by working on a vocabulary project of their choice. I created a Tic-Tac-Toe sheet to allow for differentiated learning with possible project ideas for my students to choose from and thought I would introduce the project next week with a song with apologies to Lady Gaga: "I Was Born to do Math"! Now I just need to come up with some kind of crazy head piece to set the right mood!
