This product contains differentiated vocabulary maps that support 2nd grade students while reading HMH's Journey's, Schools Around the World. This is a super opportunity for students to analyze the word and challenge themselves to think about the word in new ways. These maps also provide opportunity to differentiate during literacy centers.
Differentiated- The vocabulary maps are differentiated for 3 levels: below level, on level and above level
Below Level- The learner will concentrate on ABC order and finding the word in the glossary as well as syllable count.
On Level Each of the 8 target vocabulary words are placed on the maps. Students are asked to provide the number of syllables, ,synonym, word meaning, and a picture to help illustrate the word.
Above Level - in addition to all the skills asked for on level, these 3 challenge words ask for both synonym and antonym as well as the word in a sentence. I encourage my above level students to use the thesaurus.
