This package aligns with Journeys 3rd grade (all units) and contains CLOZE (fill in the blank) worksheets and Crossword Puzzles to teach, re-teach, practice, or assess vocabulary in the third grade Journeys Common Core 2014 Edition units 1 through 6. Used to challenge students, to enrich and engage learning, and as a center or centers with teacher or parent helpers to teach and provide practice for reading vocabulary and definitions.
Please Note: This product is for the Common Core Journeys 3rd Grade 2014 Edition. We also have the 2011 version of this product in our store.
Also included is the corresponding answer key for each worksheet and a word list for each crossword puzzle. 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.
We included the key vocabulary words from the following anthologies:
Unit 1: “A Fine, Fine School”, “The Trial of Cardigan Jones”, “Destiny’s Gifts” , “Pop’s Bridge”, “Roberto Clemente”
Unit 2: “Max’s Words”, “What Do Illustrators Do?”, “The Harvest Birds”, “Kamishibai Man”, “Young Thomas Edison”
Unit 3: “Jump! from the Life of Michael Jordan”, “The Science Fair”, “ Yonder Mountain”, “Aero and Officer Mike”, “The Extra-good Sunday”
Unit 4: “A Mr. Rubbish Mood”, “The Albertosaurus Mystery”, “A Tree is Growing”, “Dogzilla”, “Life on the Ice”
Unit 5: “Two Bad Ants”, “Poems About Bugs”, “The Journey: Stories of Migration”, “The Journey of Oliver K. Woodman”, “ Dog-of-the-Sea-Waves”, “Mountains: Surviving on Mt. Everest”
Unit6: “Paca and the Beetle ”, “The Power of Magnets”, “Becoming Anything He Wants to Be”, “A New Team of Heroes”, “Acting Across Generations”
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.
These worksheets are also included within our Journeys Common Core Unit Products.
