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 Second Grade Assessment Book is designed for students using the Power in Words: Common Core Academic Vocabulary Activity Book. (Find the activity book on TPT by searching Anne Teague) The Assessment Booklet includes tests for 30 Word Lists, and allows teachers to monitor student mastery of academic vocabulary.
