Introduction
All students need to expand their working vocabularies. Some students have a natural facility for
language and semantic relationships, enabling them to enlarge their vocabulary almost effortlessly.
Simply reading, listening and talking seem to boost these students vocabulary skills.
Many other students need to exert conscious energy to understand and recall an increasingly diverse
vocabulary. Some of them are poor or reluctant readers. Other students have limited exposure to
a rich variety of spoken English. Still others have language-learning disabilities, attention disorders
or ineffective systems for storing and retrieving vocabulary. All of these students can benefit from
specific vocabulary exposure and instruction. They can improve their vocabulary skills through
conscious attention and guided learning.
The main goal of Spotlight on Vocabulary books is to help students recognize and use specific
strategies to enrich their skills for understanding and using an increasingly rich vocabulary. Attributes
teaches students the many ways we use words to describe things. These are the student objectives
of this book:

To understand that we can use words to describe things in


many different ways

To learn to describe what things look like, feel like, taste like,
sound like, or smell like

To use actions, functions or parts to describe things


To exclude words that are not logical attributes of things
To describe things

Here are some guidelines for doing the activities in this book with your students:

A CD of the activities in this book is included inside the back cover. You can photocopy the
pages as necessary or print them directly from a printer.

Have your students take the Pretest/Posttest (page 6) before they begin doing the activities in
this book. When they have completed the book, have them retake the test and compare the
results to their original scores.

Spotlight on Vocabulary
Attributes

Copyright 2005 LinguiSystems, Inc.

Use each word in a sentence as you present it to your students. Then ask a student to use
it in another sentence.

Make sure your students have ready access to a student-friendly dictionary and thesaurus.
Encourage your students to consult these references while theyre doing the activities.

Use an opaque bag or box to hide a few objects. Have your students take turns feeling and
describing a mystery object from the bag/box for the other students to guess. Then display
the object and help your students write all the ways to describe the object, including what it
does/how we use it, what it looks like, what parts it has, where you find it, etc.

Give your students lots of practice both in identifying things from descriptions and in
describing things themselves. Be a good role model yourself by giving clear descriptions
of things as you present various lessons and activities to your students.

Use pictures of objects to play 20 Questions with your students. Each question should target
an attribute (a way to describe something) in a yes/no format, such as Does it have wings?
or Do we eat it?

Cut out ads from magazines or newspapers. Have your students work in small groups to
identify describing words and phrases. Have them explain these atrributes to the class.

Have your students create want ads for a new teacher, a new student, or their favorite
games. These want ads should feature lists of the desired attributes, such as Knows what
students like to do or Tells great jokes.

We hope Attributes is a big hit with you and your students!
