Practice, practice, practice those PARCC terms & reading vocabulary on another level. (ENGLISH & SPANISH)!!! BUT, IT'S NOT JUST FOR PARCC!
One of These Things is not Like the Other... stimulates the brain through examining word definitions and classifications to help cement key concepts and terminology. This 12-page booklet contains words which are encountered on a daily basis in the classroom and in life.
Students are given groups of 4 to 5 words in both English and Spanish and must decide which word in each group does not belong. Students will strategize using cognates, affixes and/or similarities and opposites to determine the significance of the word groupings.
Words include text features, types of literature, commonly found adjectives, and some science and social studies vocabulary.
Use this as a crash course for the PARCC, or before and after the PARCC, or anytime you have ELLs, or students who'd like to expand their Spanish lexicon, too.
Fine for group work, quizzes, reviews, and an extension activity.
Great for parents to practice either language with their children.
