Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  September 19, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Each week I try to introduce story vocabulary before we read. I usually do this in a small group and with a sorting activity . I am trying to get more ideas so the kids don't get bored. Is this something that can be adaptable for any word list? Do you think I can use it for what I am doing?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 19, 2012Andrea Knight answered:
Hi jglam7,

This set of materials isn't specific to any word list at all. The thinksheets are open-ended and can be used for any words you need to teach. There are also strategies the children can learn to use independently so that when they come to words they don't understand, they're equipped to figure it out. There are also some fun games inspired by popular board games (like Taboo), plus activities for synonyms, antonyms, and common prefixes. I think you'll be able to use it and tailor it to your specific needs.

Thanks!
Andrea :)
