A vocabulary template to be used for every math unit. This template will help students become fluent in rich mathematical vocabulary which will help them communicate their mathematical ideas. The graphic organizer help students compare and contrast as well as use a visual to help remember the terms, but most importantly it focuses on differentiating what the word IS, what it IS NOT, what it's LIKE etc. This graphic organizer uses best practices for vocabulary mastery.
I used this at the end of the unit as a partner activity. This was very helpful before an assessment. I have also used it partially filled out by myself and every time a new vocabulary term was introduced the kids filled it out the next day. I suggest printing on CARD STOCK or in a bright color (or both!)
