I love the build vocabulary activities listed in the language arts section of the Teacher's Editions of the Wonders Reading Series. However, I didn't want to have to write them on the board or type them up to display on my Smart Board every day. Therefore, I took the activities and typed them up into these easy to use worksheets.
Some ideas for using these worksheets are:
copy them all for students to do as seat work / morning work
copy them all and create a notebook in a 3 pronged folder for each student.
give out pages for homework
scan and display the pages on your Smart Board for whole group discussions / activities
You will receive:
5 weeks of vocabulary activities for Unit 1 of the Mc-Graw Hill Reading Series
Each week has 6 pages for a total of 30 worksheets.
Day 1: Connect to Vocabulary by answering questions containing the vocabulary word
Day 2: Expand Vocabulary by adding, changing, or removing inflectional endings and writing sentences.
Day 3: Reinforce the Words by completing sentence stems and reviewing some of last weeks words.
Day 4: Connect to Writing by writing a sentence with each word.
Day 5: Word Squares--Write a definition, synonym, non-example, and draw an illustration for each word.
