I created these Power Word Booklets to help my 1st grade students develop stronger vocabulary and develop better reading skills. They really enjoy the illustration section, and I find more students use the words in their daily conversation when we add them to our booklets.
Teachers use their own vocabulary from their language arts programs, social studies units, science topics, and any other content areas.
Students collect these new words by adding them to their Power Word Booklet. The framework in the booklet guides them as they look for and record prefixes, suffixes, roots, and other word "chunks." Students illustrate the meanings and can write a sentence with the word or record synonyms.
