I use this product in my 1st grade class. My students have their own “Resource Folder”. This is where they keep their Word Wall List and vocabulary cards for Reading, Social Studies, and Science. I see the students often referencing to their dictionaries when they are looking for words or spelling while they write or read. They get to take these home at the end of the year and they love them!
There are different versions of the vocabulary cards to match your teaching style.
My students know that as an early finisher they can write their word wall words on their list. They keep them updated because they will go back to review their words at other times throughout the day/week.
When I introduce vocabulary words, the students write the word and then circle whether they know what the word means or not, or if they kind of know it. I then teach them the word. On another day, as a class we will write a "kid-friendly" definition along with draw a picture.
These are made to where they can be printed double sided with space on the edge so the holes don’t mess up the word box.
I can't wait to hear what you think, so leave a rating and comment! :)
