This is a great graphic organizer for vocabulary for whole group or differentiated lists.
One idea: Allow each student to find one word from their own reading each day that challenges them or that they think could "stump the teacher." Then have them record the sentence and circle and underline the context clues that helped them to decode the meaning of the word. They can also identify the part of speech and define the word. Collect the sheets each Friday and add the 10-15 best words to a Word Wall and include them in your vocabulary station. Be sure to give a shout out to the students whose words are selected...this is a huge motivator! Next Friday these words can be on the quiz!
