Students trace the alphabet letters and election words and then write them. Teachers can have older students define them as well.
Keeping a dictionary is a wonderful way to build vocabulary and categorize specific words that go with a large theme, that students will be reading, and studying about.
The Election Dictionary is great for Daily 5 "Word Work" activities.
Be sure and check out the companion Election Word Wall Word Packet which goes perfectly with this dictionary activity, so that you can also display election-themed words on your Word Wall.
