►EDITABLE WORD WALL CARDS
➜EDITABLE illustrated science vocabulary cards to help you pre-teach, review and consolidate terminology related to the GRADE 3 topic STRONG AND STABLE STRUCTURES.
➜INCLUDES fill in the blank student pages in 2 sizes (full page and half page). Use these when you are projecting your word wall as part of your topic introduction. Students do not need to copy complete definitions, they can just fill in the blanks and make their own personal, portable, illustrated word wall. Perfect for ELL learners too!
➜The use of a word wall in a classroom can be a highly effective teaching strategy to improve literacy skills. Word wall activities encourage active student participation. Gestures, such as pointing to key words during a lesson, offer visual reinforcement which can be very helpful for students.
➜SEVENTEEN WORDS and phrases relevant to the concepts presented in the curriculum are provided, with each word accompanied by a definition and an image! Three words/phrases are on each page, and can be cut apart and introduced as new vocabulary is encountered.
You can add your own vocabulary words on the editable PDF pages included using Adobe software.
➜8 1/2 by 11 sized pages similar to my popular STRONG AND STABLE STRUCTURES ILLUSTRATED WORD WALL resource. You can print and laminate these to create a beautiful, educational bulletin board.
