This tool kit was designed to help students master the vocabulary used in the Grade 4 Geometry Domain of the Common Core State Standards. I compared the "I Can" statements posted on the internet from multiple school districts and the standards listed on Mastery Connect and identified 28 vocabulary words essential to this domain.
Included in this 76 page tool kit are the following items:
1. A vocabulary book template with covers to design either a full page or half page book. Each vocabulary word is accompanied by lines for students to write a definition and a box for students to draw an example. By formulating their own definition/example, students will be working at the high end of Bloom's Taxonomy.
2. A set of vocabulary flash cards for practicing the terms and definitions. Have students work in pairs to quiz each other, play whole group games like around the world, or make a set for each student to practice with at home.
3. A board game to add fun to the practice. Questions are in multiple choice format for easy differentiation. Students needing enrichment can play without the multiple choice aspect while others have the choices. Students needing intervention can be given two choices instead of three. An alternative set of questions containing QR codes is also provided so students can check their answers using a QR reader.
4. A set of Task Cards with many uses. Play "Write the room" or "Scoot". Use as a center or with the whole class. A google search will result in many ways teachers use task cards in their classrooms. A recording sheet is provided along with answer keys in both text and QR format.
5. A set of posters with a picture form of each word. Use these as word wall posters, focus posters as words are introduced, or bind into a picture book for intervention students.
