Route 66 is one of many Expand Your Vocabulary units Link-Expand Your Vocabulary Full Workbook
. Expand allows students to practice many skills as it combines reading strategies such as infering, and using context clues, along with simple and complex sentence building, as well as grammar and synonym / antonym practice. Each unit consists of 6 exercises designed to have students master 10 new vocabulary words. These words were selected among the most frequently seen words in the SAT tests.
Students will first read the 10 new words in context. They will then associate synonyms and antonyms from a word bank to these new words. Next, they'll find the words closest in meaning to the new words from a list. After, they'll do a fill-in the blanks exercise. Finally, students will construct their own sentences in which they clearly demonstrate their understanding of the new vocubulary.
In this free unit, you will also receive the introduction to the Expand Your Vocabulary method, as well as the entire list of vocabulary words, both alphabetically and by unit, that students can master.
Students and teachers are sure to enjoy this quiet and independent learning activity - perfect for Friday afternoon classes! These vocab building worksheets can also be used as an Internet activity with students using the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary and Thesaurus or the link on my website under the PRACTICE tab at www.eslquebec.com.
