Critical Nouns of the Common Core Instruction Pack
Test Prep all year long!
This companion product to my Critical Nouns Word Wall Cards
was created to give your students deliberate instruction and practice with the Common Core Critical Nouns
You can find the Critical Nouns word wall cards HERE.
While the word wall cards are essential for your visual learners and posting them gives your students a place to reference all year long, just discussing and posting the vocabulary isn't enough. So I created this instruction packet to intentionally introduce, analyze, discuss and master each specific critical noun.
This set includes
an instruction page (graphic organizer) for each of the 20 critical nouns
found in the Common Core Standards and a quiz for every group of four-words. All answer keys are included.
What works best in my classroom is to print the practice pages 4 at a time and staple into a packet. We practice one word a day Monday - Thursday. Then on Friday we take the quiz. The quiz helps me to see which words are mastered and which words need more discussion and exposure. Practice pages can also be used in centers, as homework, for word work, and much more........
This set offers 5 weeks of test-prep practice of the Critical Nouns
of the Common Core.

Are your students struggling with understanding the Critical Nouns in the Common Core Standards? These nouns are tricky and students cannot perform well on THE TEST if they do not know what the questions are asking them to do!!!
You must expose your students to these critical academic vocabulary words
. And what better way to do that then to teach each word deliberately and then post for students to reference all year long!
A sample of words included in this instruction pack are: alliteration, connotative, argument, details, analogy, evidence, audience.......
