I mentioned how I had my students show the class their excited faces which was one of our vocabulary words. Most of my students are second language learners, and I feel like quick opportunities to act out words helps the meanings stick.
I mostly mentioned it because of something funny that happened when we did it. (I don’t even know how to explain it here).
Later, two of the teachers on my team mentioned that they had their students act it out as well and how great it worked.
