Are you worried about staying organized with the new Reading Wonders curriculum from McGraw Hill?
With this document, vocabulary words and High Frequency words are outlined by the week. Additionally, the activities encourage making connections and drawing conclusions about the different words. Students can draw a picture to aid in their understanding of the different words for the week. These activities support Common Core standards as they encourage students to create, synthesize and make connections.
Students can take home the flashcards of the different words. The cards can also be used in conjunction with the Rule Chart Page. On this page, students have to categorize the words into different groups based on a self created rule. Students then put the different words into groups. this can be a great review tool as students can use words from previous weeks. Citing evidence is a key component of Common Core. The Word, Picture, Evidence chart allows students to make meaning with the different words and then cite evidence of the word’s meaning. Here, they can describe context clues from the story that has the vocabulary words in it for the week
I am planning to have this ready for each different unit for second grade.
