Texas teachers, I designed this word wall to help you prepare your students for the STAAR test. The reading academic vocabulary words were taken directly from the Texas TEKS and previous STAAR tests. The words have been broken down into 6 categories (vocabulary, comprehension, fiction, nonfiction, poetry/figurative language, and drama), and they are color coded. This set includes: the category headings, the vocabulary words with definitions, and an extra template to add more words if you would like to.
**Knowing the meaning of the reading academic vocabulary is essential in order for students to be able to pass the state test.
-6 heading cards
-72 academic vocabulary word and definition cards
-blank vocabulary cards for each category
-a color coded key
*the headings and cards are all color coded to make it easier to learn
*purple - vocabulary
*teal - comprehension
*orange - fiction
*blue - nonfiction
*pink - poetry/figurative language
*green - drama
I hope you enjoy this product,
