This vocabulary grid is a blank table that can be used for any book or story. The book/story title and chapter number can be listed at the top of each page. There are five columns titled: vocabulary word, part of speech, class definition, use the word in a sentence, and draw a detailed picture. Five vocabulary words can fit on each page.
I use this page for each of the core literature books I read with my 4th grade and copy one page per chapter. (The packets I make with this page correspond with the leveled vocabulary stories/tests I have posted separately.) We come up with a definition together but you could always have the students look up the words in a dictionary.
