Vocab Final Four March Madness

7th and 8th grade English teacher Carolyn Warhaftig brought back the March Madness vocabulary competition to 7th and 8th grades again this year. Using teams of two, the pairs move through the brackets like in basketball. The way they play it is similar to "Heads Up" - a  vocabulary word from the class list of over 60 words is shown and one partner on a team has to define it and get the other partner to guess it. The most correct words in a minute wins. Teams play several rounds to get to the Final Four; those championship rounds were held this week during Community Time. Other students serve as timekeepers, scorekeepers, and facilitators to keep the championship round moving smoothly. After a lively couple of rounds, the champion teams for each grade were declared. Congratulations, word wizards!
