Vocabulary Building Cards
These vocabulary building cards were designed for early primary general education students and ELL newcomers in grades K-5.
The direct instruction method is used with these cards to facilitate learning the English language. The DI method uses a detailed repetitive script to teach vocabulary. This method coupled with sheltered instruction experiences (in the content areas of science and social studies) is a powerful combination for language acquisition lessons.
Each vocabulary card has a complimenting script for you to photo copy on the back of the card. These cards can be used by a teacher in a whole group lesson or with individual students with a paraprofessional. The script attends to the correct use of pronouns and plurals. Extension questions are provided for opportunities to build vocabulary , grammar and conversational English. These cards can be used with an English peer buddy. In the upper primary setting, a general education fourth or fifth grader can use the script to buddy teach a newcomer student.
