What are tier 2 vocabulary words?

They are vocabulary words seen across content areas and commonly seen on standardized tests.

Evidence shows that there is an association between vocabulary knowledge and academic attainment. (Spencer et al., 2017).


What have other SLPs said about this resource?!

"Super motivating for my students! I appreciate the use of nonsense words to practice the skill in the beginning stages, then moving to real words. Lots of fun and keeps my kids engaged."

"The vocabulary words are great for my middle schoolers! They love it and it’s so easy to use, thanks!"

"I like this resource as a different way to target vocabulary. Even older students like to color and the use of emoji faces makes it relevant to the age group."
