Why Geometry Vocabulary? I regularly hear people comment, “Math is easy for students learning English. It’s a universal language!” There’s a lot of vocabulary in math, though, and, Geometry seems to hold a large portion of it. Of course, the way to mastery is through repetition until assimilated into one’s vocabulary. I don’t know about you, but rhombus, obtuse, and polygon aren’t part of my daily language, so I know it’s not going to come easily for my ELLs or students with language based LDs. That combined with students needing to explain their mathematical work both orally and in writing to meet Common Core Standards, means instruction is crucial for student success. Since it will take use of the vocabulary for students to make it their own, I’ve put together some fun and engaging hands-on activities to help with the process:
* 48 pairs of vocabulary cards. Each pair has
1 vocabulary word
1 definition & visual depiction
* 1 Template to print the opposite side of the vocabulary cards
* 25 GEOM-O (bingo) boards
* 1 vocabulary notebook .pdf with the word on each page
* 1 modified vocabulary notebook .pdf which has the definition already recorded on each page
* Links to a Google Doc for each of the above notebooks for those with 1:1 technology, wanting to implement digital vocabulary notebooks. The files are view only, so students (and you) will need to copy the file to make it your own. FILE/MAKE A COPY in the top left corner of the document.
* Ideas for games and activities
Vocabulary words included are:
