This package contains third grade CLOZE (fill in the blank) worksheets to teach, re-teach, practice, or assess vocabulary in the third grade Houghton Mifflin anthologies from Themes 1- 6 (all themes for the entire year). Also included is the corresponding answer key for each worksheet. When we developed these worksheets we used all of the key vocabulary words and some supplemental words. Some of the words were used within the context of each story, and some of the words we used outside of the story’s context to challenge the students and their understanding of each word’s definition. Vocabulary development is a key focus area in the new Common Core Standards, because students must increase their knowledge of academic language by growing their vocabulary. These worksheets align with the Common Core Standards for Language Arts under Language: Conventions, effective use and vocabulary, understanding words and their relationships, and acquisition of new vocabulary. We included the key vocabulary words from the following anthologies:
