Product Description
This is a vocabulary tracking sheet. I recently began using the terms "brick" and "mortar" words when presenting vocabulary. This strategy is based on the research of Dutro and Moran (2003) and Zwiers (2007). Brick words are content vocabulary words, such as "simile", "protista" or "pollution". Mortar words are transition type words such as
"after", "infer", "meanwhile", or "in addition". Directly teaching both of these is particularly helpful for ELLs and struggling readers. I also teach two Latin/Greek stems each week. This worksheet is used by students as I present each mini-lesson. We study from the sheet each week. An example is included. (As a reading teacher, I use content area "brick" words that I get from core subject area teachers, so that my students are introduced to those words the same week or earlier than in their core classes.)
