This is a 30 week vocabulary program I developed for my 4th graders. I teach at a Title 1 school with a high ESOL population. We have seen that our students really struggle with vocabulary acquisition so I created a simple program to incorporate direct instruction of vocabulary words into our day.
This program focus mainly on academic vocabulary to set students up for success when it comes to testing. I also incorporated terms that students might encounter in their daily reading.
I personally only have 5-10 minutes a day I can devote to vocabulary development, so this program is designed to fit within that structure, but could easily be expanded if you are lucky enough to have more time!
30 weeks of instruction divided into 10 units
3 vocabulary terms a week
PowerPoints to introduce each vocabulary term
Choice boards and choice activities for students to practice
Unit assessments (every 3 weeks)
Word wall cards
