Vocabulary practice literally "comes to life" when you use these Tic-Tac-Vo(cabulary) boards to foster real-life connections between the weekly vocabulary words and your students. Use these at independent word work stations, with small groups for differentiated instruction, or as a whole-class vocabulary-building activity.
Each board has nine word-work activities featuring a mixture of the text vocabulary and the enrichment/extension vocabulary for the 2nd Grade Journeys 2014, Unit 4 stories listed below:
Mr. Tanen's Tie Trouble
Luke Goes to Bat
My Name is Gabriela
The Signmaker's Assistant
Dex: The Heart of a Hero
The directions are left open-ended to give teachers the flexibility to customize the directions to meet the needs of their students. Have students complete a Tic-Tac-Toe each day for multiple days, or have students complete a predetermined number of boxes - you decide!
