In order to learn the word and use it you will have to use it about 9 times to get used to it.
To get the word to stay in your memory you could try the following:
· Make a small poster with the word and draw a picture or pictures that represents the word.
· Write the word down in your planner and write the meaning next to it.
· Say the word in sentences and try to get the correct meaning of the word.
· Use the word in your writing this week and check that you’ve got the meaning correct. This doesn’t have to be in English, it could be in other lessons where you write like Humanities or Science.
