Nuances - Shades of Meaning Vocabulary Card Set!

Each of the 65 slides includes 4 vocabulary cards (260 cards in all) which are related. Words include nouns, verbs, and adjectives. Teachers may want to use these at centers, post them on a bulletin board, or assign as small-group or independent games and activities. Provide students with groups of the cards and have them categorize the words into sets that are similar to utilize important word-work strategies.

Some teachers choose to have students exercise higher-order thinking as they rank the related words on a continuum from weak to strong, justifying their responses. These answers cannot be considered right or wrong. The imortant assessment is in the thinking the student demonstrates and his ability to defend the ranking with a logical explanation.

Students will learn to understand and explain the similarity and difference between words that have similar meanings. Some of these words will be unfamiliar to students and will provide an opportunity for students to increase their vocabulary.

Common Core Standards Addressed: ELACC2L5b; ELACC3L5c; ELACC4L5; ELACC5L5; ELACC6L5c.
