First, this package contains Fourth Grade CLOZE (fill in the blank) worksheets to teach, re-teach, practice, or assess vocabulary in the fourth grade Journeys Common Core 2014 Edition units 1 through 6 (all units for the entire year- unit names and stories are listed below). 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. We included the key vocabulary words from the following anthologies:
Unit 1: “Because of Winn-Dixie”, “My Brother Martin: A Sister Remembers Growing Up with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.”, “My Librarian Is a Camel”, “The Power of W.O.W.!”, “Stormalong”
Unit 2: “Dear Mr. Winston”, “Invasion from Mars”, “Coming Distractions: Questioning Movies”, “Me and Uncle Romie”, “Jose! Born to Dance”
Unit 3: “Hurricanes: Earth’s Mightiest Storms”, “The Earth Dragon Awakes”, “Antarctic Journal: Four Months at the Bottom of the World”, “The Life and Times of the Ant”, “Ecology for Kids”
Unit 4: “Riding Freedom”, “The Right Dog for the Job: Ira’s Path from Service Dog to Guide Dog”, “Hercules’ Quest”, “Harvesting Hope: The Story of Cesar Chavez”, “Sacagawea”
Unit 5 : “The World According to Humphrey”, “I Could Do That! Esther Morris Gets Women the Vote”, “The Ever-Living Tree: The Life and Times of a Coast Redwood”, “Owen and Mzee: The True Story of a Remarkable Friendship”, “The Fun They Had”
Unit 6: “The Girl Who Loved Spiders”, “Amphibian Alert!”, “Museums: Worlds of Wonder”, “Save Timber Woods!”, “Mystery at Reed’s Pond”
Second, this package also contains fourth grade crosswords puzzles to teach, re-teach , practice, or assess vocabulary in the fourth grade Journeys Common Core 2014 Edition reading units 1 though 6. Each unit contains a crossword puzzle, answer key, and word bank for each story in each unit (stories and units shown above). We have used these puzzles 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.
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.
