Hunger Games Academic Vocabulary Program
Words in this set: anecdote, descend, devise, emerge, essential, ominous, perimeter, sufficient
Have you ever used vocabulary worksheets and thought they were inadequate? Did they not provide enough practice with the words for them to really “sink” in? Have you ever noticed that your students will say, “I know what “descend” means – and then when you ask them to use it in a sentence, they can’t – or they use it inappropriately.
8 Weeks Worth of Academic Vocabulary Words
This packet includes academic vocabulary used in The Hunger Games. Use the entire 8 week program or a portion - it's up to you!
The words are comprised of tier 2 cross content academic vocabulary. I carefully chose these words from lists of most commonly used academic words in texts and on high stakes tests.
I use these worksheets and vocabulary routine with my students. I know these are successful because my students consistently score an average of 95% on the post assessment. They also continue to have high retention of the words.
