**Changes included in this update:
-Word Search was omitted due to the lack of student thought required
-Word Letter Sentence activity omitted due to the lack of student though required
-Relate it! activity added, which requires students to think outside of their given word list
-Open Word Sort added, which requires students to think critically about their given words and record their thought process (WHY did they sort their words in the manner they did?)
-Comic Strip activity was moved to level 4, as it requires a great deal of word meaning knowledge and time
-Level 4 requires students to include an additional 2 words that have the same spelling pattern or roots, which are not on their word list
-Dictionary Check Sheet activity now includes a space for the Dictionary Version & the page number the definition was found on (ensures accountability if independently completed)
-Directions on each graphic organizer and on the menu have been updated to reflect changes
-Some graphic organizers have been prettied up with new borders and/or fonts
-Standards are on ALL graphic organizers
**Common Core Aligned**
Like all of my products, I have successfully used this in my own classroom. My students are currently using this tool and are challenged to think above and beyond as they dig deeper into the meaning of words and transfer their newly discovered knowledge.
I hope you find that your students are just as successful!
This would be a great tool to utilize with any unit vocabulary you are introducing, as well!
If you have any questions or would like this product in an alternate file format, please feel free to contact me. I am happy to assist you! :)
