SAVE $$$$ This bundle includes ALL SEVEN vocabulary acquisition and use test prep task card sets. Over 160 task cards covering all SEVEN common core skills! The task cards are aligned to FOURTH grade vocabulary acquisition and use standards, but due to the nature of the skills these cards are suitable for grades 3-5.
To Prepare Center
Two covers for the test prep rings are provided. Laminate the cover you choose, question cards, and answer key. Punch a hole in the top and store on a metal ring. Students can flip through the questions to practice the skill. These could also be glued to an index card/index card small notebook instead of the metal ring used as a flip book.
These skills are covered with the task card sets:
Vocabulary Acquisition and Use:
Determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases based on grade 4 reading and content, choosing flexibly from a range of strategies.
Use context (e.g., definitions, examples, or restatements in text) as a clue to the meaning of a word or phrase.
Use common, grade-appropriate Greek and Latin affixes and roots as clues to the meaning of a word (e.g., telegraph, photograph, autograph).
Consult reference materials (e.g., dictionaries, glossaries, thesauruses), both print and digital, to find the pronunciation and determine or clarify the precise meaning of key words and phrases.
Demonstrate understanding of figurative language, word relationships, and nuances in word meanings.
Explain the meaning of simple similes and metaphors (e.g., as pretty as a picture) in context.
Recognize and explain the meaning of common idioms, adages, and proverbs.
Demonstrate understanding of words by relating them to their opposites (antonyms) and to words with similar but not identical meanings (synonyms).
Acquire and use accurately grade-appropriate general academic and domain-specific words and phrases, including those that signal precise actions, emotions, or states of being (e.g., quizzed, whined, stammered) and that are basic to a particular topic (e.g., wildlife, conservation, and endangered when discussing animal preservation).
