Vocabulary posters for difficult and challenging words found in NAPLAN. Features a student-friendly definition, an example sentence with the word, and an image.

I introduce and teach 1-2 words each week. I encourage my students to use these words in their writing and speaking. An extra incentive that I have found works really well is allowing students to write the challenging word in a colouring pencil if they use it in their work.

See the preview for example posters.

30 words are included in this resource - abandoned, amusing, brilliant, colossal, concerned, considerate, courageous, criminal, desperate, detect, exaggerate, exhilarating, extremely, hesitate, magnificent, minuscule, nuisance, option, outrageous, peculiar, precious, require, spectacular, surround, undoubtedly, useless, valuable, vicious, wondrous.

BONUS: this resource also includes a "Give the reader a feeling" poster that encourages word choice in writing.
