Description

Ooh-La-La! You will adore these exquisite sets of vocabulary cards that coordinate with ten different Fancy Nancy stories.

Each card set features vocabulary words from a select Fancy Nancy book. Each card measures 8.5 inches by just under 3 inches., and is surrounded by a suitably glittering fancy frame around the word. Each set of words share the same color of sparkly glitter frame. The vocabulary cards feature the word in a bold, readable font, with a short definition appearing just under the word on the card. The cards are labeled with the name of the story in which the words are featured to ensure easy organization.

You will also receive a complimentary set of quarter-page reproductions of the book covers that are featured in this set. These pictures can be mounted next to the word collections to identify the source of the words. Whether you display the words as individual cards or use the glittery poster form, these cards will no doubt work to expand your students' vocabulary exponentially!

Included in this set are blank copies of the vocabulary cards/posters that feature glittering frames that match the ones used in the cards in this set.


You are sure to adore these cards. They are c'est magnifique!

Fancy Nancy Spectacular Spectacles Crossword Puzzle Activity

Ooh-La-La! Reinforce Vocabulary and Check Comprehension with this Fabulously Fun Activity!

Who doesn't love a puzzle? Your students will love working on this culminating activity that coordinates with Jane O'Connor's Fancy Nancy Spectacular Spectacles (I Can Read series). This engaging activity can be used as a pre-reading organizer, a follow-up activity, or review exercise for this delightful Fancy Nancy book.

Questions regarding vocabulary and events in the story can be answered by reading and checking the text of the book.

Embedded in this activity are a variety of skills from the ELA Common Core State Standards. Fundamental Reading, Phonics, Phonological Awareness, Word Recognition, and Key Details and Ideas, are among the many CCSS standards that are addressed by this activity.

Students can work independently or in teams to complete the puzzle. Teachers often choose to complete these puzzles together as a class, using a document camera to lead the process. This is especially helpful when teaching the art of puzzle-working as an introductory skill. My own students absolutely love collecting the completed puzzles in their Literacy Binders!

Teachers can scaffold this activity for learners by prefilling-in select letters in the puzzle. Scaffolding can also be accomplished by selectively pairing students.

Prepare student copies of the puzzle by copying the puzzle on one page, and the clues on another. Students can use a couple of pieces of scotch tape as a binding to fasten the two pieces of paper into one very large puzzle. If you are fortunate enough to have a copy machine that produces copies on 11" x 17" paper, you can use this setting to create your mega puzzles.

In addition to the fun of simply having such a large puzzle, the size allows for students to practice legible handwriting in the puzzle boxes and on the lines of the cloze-type sentences. The fancy frames and designs allow students to add a little decorative colorful touch with crayons or colored pencils.

An easy-to-check, full-size Answer Key is included in this packet.
