Students are required to learn new vocabulary every week, especially in math, science, and social studies. The Four Square Vocabulary method is a wonderful way to help students learn new words. Using this product, students will define the given word (either by copying the definition or finding it in a dictionary), use the word in a sentence, and draw an illustration. This has helped my first graders learn new vocabulary and retain the words.
You can also use this at a reading/Daily 5 center! Set out the dictionaries and new words, then let students explore!
