PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

40 Weeks included!! Introduce students to a mystery word of the week, and watch their vocabularies grow!
Packet includes weeks 1-40 from my other Mystery Word of the Week sets.
Each Vocabulary Word of the Week has daily clue posters and the "answer" poster for Fridays. Daily clues include synonyms, antonyms, using the word in a sentence, and describing the number of letters/beginning letter. Create an interactive bulletin board, post the Mystery Word of the Week as a challenge, incorporate the clue in your morning meeting, or include this in your Work on Words during Daily 5. The "Superhero" and "Pirate" themes are engaging to students and will be an asset to your classroom. Both sets, 205 pages each, are included in this download so you can choose the theme that best fits with your class!
The set has 40 words, a suggested order for the words, and the flexibility of using the words that are right for your class! Please download the preview for the complete list of words and a free week in both themes! (Updated all graphics 9/24/2013)

This purchase is for single-classroom use. For additional licensing options, either purchase additional licenses or email me at hellomrssykes@gmail.com.
Thank you for looking! Jen Sykes

I have been looking for something to work on vocabulary acquisition and this is really great! I bought your first pack back when you had it on sale a month or so ago. My kids enjoy trying to figure out the words every week. I knew it was worth buying the whole years worth so I can do it all year!

Great Idea! I downloaded the free Christmas mystery word. It was a hit! I work at a small K-12 school and had students of all ages asking me to continue posting the mystery words. Thank you for providing me the opportunity to increase the vocabulary of all in a fun, non-threatening way.

My students look for the new clue daily to see if they can figure it out before the others. Thank you so much for this. I am going to add an area for students to write down how they have used the vocabulary words in their daily conversations.

Hi,
With all of the adorable themes you have available, I am doing a different one this year. I am doing a mystery/detective theme. I would love to use your Mystery Word of the Week and I am sure it takes a while to add the graphics. I was wondering if you would make a generic set available?

Thanks for all of your great products,
Sue
