o Students demonstrate the ability to use these words in the appropriate context.

The brain based tasks allow students to elucidate and play with new words
. All materials are CCSS aligned.
Students learn to spot new or unfamiliar words in their texts
and line these up to rock new meanings. Words differ for diverse students and this set of tasks allows for differences. The materials are completed alone or in teams.
Hopefully these ready-to-roll brain-based materials
will benefit your learners and leaders as they do mine at middle, secondary, university levels and beyond.
Do follow my TpT site
and keep up with brain-friendly materials to enhance your class.
