- Product Description
The Frayer Model is a graphic organizer used for word analysis and vocabulary building. This four-square model prompts students to think about and describe the meaning of a word or concept by . . .
- Defining the term,
- Describing its essential characteristics,
- Providing examples of the idea, and
- Offering non-examples of the idea.
This strategy stresses understanding words within the larger context of a reading selection by requiring students, first, to analyze the items (definition and characteristics) and, second, to synthesize/apply this information by thinking of examples and non-examples.

Good for all grades, whether the words are "cat, hat, and bat", or "anachronistic, empathy, and perfidious."
The supplied template allows for manual use (pencil) or digital use (online), allows for a selection of up to 20 words (students are responsible for all or selected words), and includes personalized instructions based on teacher need.
Perfect accompaniment for spelling or vocabulary words. ELD strategy.
Great for sight words, science/math glossaries, and words found in class book.
My use (recommended): share the document with a group of students and allow them to share and build one complete document for a "jigsaw" approach. This is the easiest method for teachers who want to print and display the work.
Your digital copy includes COLOR version and BLACK AND WHITE version.
