Direct teaching of academic vocabulary is proven to improve test scores!!
The Common Core ELA Anchor Standard 6 states that students at all grades should:
Acquire and use accurately a range of general academic and domain-specific words and phrases sufficient for reading, writing, speaking, and listening....and demonstrate independence in gathering vocabulary knowledge when encountering an unknown term important to comprehension or expression.
This product contains tools for teaching 78 ELA academic vocabulary words appropriate for grades 2-4. I used various resources to create this list of words, including the NWEA (MAP) suggested vocabulary list.
-78 Illustrated Full-color Posters
-78 Student Word Cards (put on binder ring for quick reference)
-78 Word Wall Word cards
-7 Page Glossary (Perfect for placing in a reader's/writer's notebook)
-Editable Templates for adding your own words (PPT file)
All pages print beautifully in full color or B/W.
**I am happy to add words to suit your needs...just purchase the product and place your request in the "Questions" section.
