Our English Language Learners are often lacking basic English vocabulary words. The lack of these words often leads to difficulty in reading, writing and general communication. This vocabulary packet is one of a set of vocabulary packets designed to help give English Language Learners the vocabulary they need to be successful in the classroom.

Since not all English Language Learners are at the same level, this packet has 4 different levels (basic, developing, intermediate and advanced) to allow teachers to meet the needs of all of their students. While working with this packet, students learn, review, write with and play with, new vocabulary words. Each level also includes a cloze word assessment. Use this packet as a small mini lesson, or the basis of all of your ELL instruction, either way it will enhance the vocabulary of your English Language Learners.

This packet is based around Important Verbs, that our students are often lacking. This lack of verbs can hinder their writing and reading. There are 4 levels, with each level increasing in difficulty. Level 1 includes verbs like: have, like, jump, think and say. Level 2 includes verbs like: own, love, hop, sing and draw. Level 3 includes verbs like: buy, adore, bounce, whisper and compete. Level 4 includes verbs like: possess, crave, utter, devour and compose.

***Note - this does NOT cover verb congugations or tenses.
