Model
1. Demonstrate for
students how to
use Luna.
Guide
2. Spelling: Have
students develop a
spelling strategy
and use Luna to
teach it to the class.
Students write each
word on a card and
lead the class in a
word sort or place
scrambled foam
letters on a table
and challenge
classmates to
guess and spell
the word.

3. Reading Skills:
Have students
create their own
word walls to record
words they know
about a topic. Use Luna to share students' word walls with the class. Compare and contrast the lists. Have students add words from the projected words to their own lists.
4. Vocabulary: Use Luna to display a list of words. Give students cards with definitions for the words. Challenge students to work together to define each word or write a sentence with the term on the word wall.

5. Content-area Reading: At the end of a unit have students create word walls on paper or with a computer. Use Luna to display each word wall and make a comprehensive class word wall.
Assess
6. Give specific feedback regarding how well a student demonstrated his or her knowledge of a subject. Photograph students word walls and add them to portfolios for conference time, or upload photos to your class website.
Extend
7. Encourage further reflection by using Luna to show the class a KWL (What I Already Know, What I Want to Know, What I have Learned) chart. Provide students with stick-on notes. Have students write their input on the notes and add them to the chart.
