With all of the content upper elementary teachers have to cover, wouldn't you like to be able to "kill two birds with one stone?" This Picture Dictionary is a great way to build academic vocabulary while integrating social studies content and grammar! Have students glue this in an Interactive Notebook as notes or turn in for a grade! Aligned to 5th grade Georgia SS curriculum!
Students are asked to synthesize definitions and rewrite in only a few words. They also must include a graphic representation for each content area vocabulary word and a grammatically correct sentence! This was a really quick indicator for me who needed practice with sentence structure!
Having the words displayed in various forms is essential to help English Language Learners increase their academic language! That is exactly what this product does!
