This Vocabulary Instruction Resource offers 12 weeks of critical test-prep practice of the Critical Verbs
of the Common Core.
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!

This companion product to my Critical Verbs Word Wall Cards was created to give your students instruction and practice with the Common Core Critical Verbs
. Last year, I created vocabulary cards to display to give my students a place to reference these tough verbs. These cards quickly became one of my best sellers! You can find these cards HERE.
However, I quickly realized that just discussing and posting the vocabulary isn't enough. So this year, I am using this instruction packet to intentionally introduce, analyze, discuss and master each specific word.
an instruction page for each of the 52 critical verbs
found in the Common Core Standards and a quiz for every group of four-five words. All answer keys are included.
Combine this INSTRUCTION PACKET
with my brand new VOCABULARY GAMES
product for ensured mastery of the critical verbs.
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........
