Product Description
This product is designed to strengthen a student's testing vocabulary throughout an entire school year, with one word used per week (with a total of 40 words) in a regular classroom, speech therapy room, ESL/ELL room, or Title I room. This is appropriate for upper elementary, middle school, and high school students, depending upon ability level. (I have used it sucessfully with students ranging in age from 4th grade through middle school.)

This is available at a 15% discount in my Middle School Bundle.

The forty words selected for this product are aligned to the Common Core State Standards, and are ones that are often found in directions and standardized tests, which are thus very important for students to comprehend. Some of the words include: predict, conclude, summary, paraphrase, opinion, quantity, trace, sequence, infer, compare, priority, analyze, define, interpret, quantity, consecutive, event, discuss, likely, result, state, concept, passage, contrast, persuade, demonstrate, conflict, and comment.

Choose one word each week, and review the word, definition, synonym, and example sentence with your students. You may display it on a white board, poster, on a projector, or any other surface in your classroom. It is recommended to make a word wall of each word used during the year for students to refer back to during the year. You may use the words in any order that you would prefer.

For extra practice, there are worksheets provided for each sound, as well as a matching game (where students are asked to match the vocabulary word and the synonym). These are both provided in black and white for convenience in making multiple copies as needed for your students. (Please download the preview file to see samples.)

Included in this product are 40 target words and definitions in six different color options (yellow, turquoise, blue, green, red, and purple), along with a worksheet for each word (2 words per page for a total of 20 pages), as well as a matching game (10 pages). There is also a recording sheet included to keep track of which week you use each word and a two page matching pre-/post-test with answer key included.

Please note, there are 55 unique pages included in this product. There are technically 157 useable pages in this file; the other five color options make up the difference.

It aligns with the following ELA CCSS: L.3.4, L.4.4, L.5.4, L.5.4, L.6.4, L.7.4, L.8.4, and L.9.4
