Wake up your winter language lessons with this very unique activity for your older students that combines geometric puzzle building with vocabulary building!
In this product, I have combined various shapes to create snowflake formations . Your students will have fun building snowflakes as they learn strategies for improving their vocabulary skills.
SIX unique snowflake designs are included . Each design varies by the number of shapes , which increases the challenge in assembly/collection of pieces needed.
33 tier-2 winter-themed vocabulary words are included in this packet. Definitions are provided for each word as well as an organizer for writing in sentence responses related to the strategies on the cube. One sample response is included as a guide.
Also included: *Four pages of vocabulary strategy cards (to use as a reference for this product or any new vocabulary that you may address ) that provide specific ways to support tier-2 vocabulary development. *Vocabulary knowledge chart. (Make additional copies) Use this chart as a “pre-activity” to fill in the vocabulary words from this packet (or for use with any newly introduced words). Put a check mark in the appropriate box to show your knowledge of each word.
This product was created using black/white line drawings of geometric shapes in order to save ink while also appealing to older students who prefer activities that do not appear juvenile.
