Use this set of worksheets, organizers and game templates to help your students master content vocabulary!
Vocabulary is best retained when it is connected to information already stored in the brain and when multiple connections are made between concepts. Nonlinguistic representations (pictures, symbols) of concepts help to encode information with another modality, which establishes more connections and better retention (Marzano, 2004).
The worksheets and activities in this packet are intended to help students build vocabulary knowledge in any content area. Suggestions are provided for using all of the materials with targeted curricular vocabulary. Black ink and colored versions are included for some of the activities. Some of the materials include: vocabulary learning pages (see preview for a FREEBIE!), graphic organizers, a worksheet for student self-assessment of learning, games such as tic-tac-toe, memory and "I have, who has?".
I hope this product helps you target content vocabulary with your students! Please leave some feedback :)
