Learning Vocabulary by Using Reference Materials
Finding engaging ways to help your middle schoolers build their vocabulary is not easy to do. The lesson plan presented here offers a great way to motivate them to build vocabulary by making it into a game. Teams of pupils use a dictionary and vocabulary scavenger hunt worksheets, embedded in the plan, to work on adding unfamiliar words to their repertoire. Along with finding the definition for each word, they must come up its part of speech, find a synonym for it, list its language of derivation, and use it in a sentence. Now, that is how a person really learns a word!

There's an article attached that might help your class understand sentences in a new light.
When is a Noun a Verb? Examining Double Duty Words
Act and act, address and address...there are so many words in our dictionary that can function as nouns or verbs. Start this lesson plan by having your class list as many as they possibly can.
