Teaching Multiple Meaning Words (MMW) with baseball!!

· · ·

Take me out to the ball game!  It is baseball season!!  Did you ever realize how many multiple meaning words are used in that game?!!  It is such a motivating way to teach this concept!!

I use this idea often and decided to put it together to share with all of you!  What does this activity include?

-A visual image that helps demonstrate the two meanings of words commonly heard in the game baseball.  I substituted the meaning used in baseball with the others.  Can the students find the errors?  Can they figure it out on their own?  If they cannot…I have sentence prompts provided for you to help guide them!!

-A worksheet for documenting and practicing the multiple meanings used in the visual image.  Can your students write the two definitions in their own words (or use in sentences…your choice!)  They can also illustrate the two meanings for themselves.  This is a great way for more practice and to ensure understanding!

You can access this activity in my TpT store by clicking HERE!!  I'm sure your students will love it as much as mine have!  My students even wanted to create their own visual images for themselves!!
