The implementation of Common Core has been accompanied by several instructional shifts. One of these shifts focuses on Academic Vocabulary. Students should be able to use academic vocabulary to access complex text.
Collaboration with my school intervention specialist led to the creation of a cohesive school-wide Academic Vocabulary curriculum. Many words are seen repeatedly across the grade level curriculum, so the exposure is not limited to one year.
This Kindergarten Activity Book is designed to present four mini-lessons a week. Each day, students are presented with a new vocabulary task. The activities are structured in a manner that require students to graduate to a deeper level of thinking each day.
