Here are 24 pages of third grade vocabulary core skill boxes with review activities. The activities have a range of skills such as using the dictionary to find meanings and parts of speech as well as using the words in context or recognizing word parts.
I included some academic words and other words I felt my third graders should know for testing. I created this for my 3rd grade ESL students as a test-prep activity because I felt they needed more vocabulary support. I have used this product in bits and pieces and a page at a time.
Its use can be spread over several weeks or over several days. It's your choice. With the third grade "guarantee" in effect, I want to expose these kids to as much as I can. There is an anchor page at the end of the document with focus words listed. It's a great product to help students get ready for ELA testing.
It comes without answer key.
NEW:I added core standards, an ESL Insights page which is a guide for teachers with ELL students. another vocabulary page, and some new graphics.
