Vocabulary Instruction that Actually Works!

We all know that providing students with long lists of vocabulary words they only have to remember for 5 days isn't very effective! Students will inevitibably forget the words as soon as the test is over. (if they knew them at all in the first place!)

With this vocabulary instruction resource, vocabulary instruction goes deep, rather than wide! Students will learn (like, really learn) three new words each week, but will continue to work with words for four weeks!

How Does it Work?

When students enter the classroom, a sentence is projected on the board. Using their Sentence Sleuth Graphic Organizer, they will become "Sentence Sleuths" and correct the mistakes in the sentence.

  1. A student leader will review the corrections with the class, ensuring to explain the why behind each correction.
  2. In each of these sentences is a vocabulary word. Using the context clues in the sentence, students will determine the meaning of the word by giving their "best guess."
  3. After several students have shared their "best guesses," the teacher reveals the dictionary definition of the word. Students will complete a 4-part graphic organizer for the word.
  4. Each week, a vocabulary review activity is included (along with ideas for additional games and activities).
  5. Voabulary quizzes are included as well to assess how well students have learned the words. Students will continue to test on words for four weeks ensuring that they don't forget the words immediately after testing!
