These word study cards are used for helping students understand vocabulary words more effectively. Instead of simply having students memorize definitions, these cards teach students the words in context, so they are able to use words in sentences and understand different forms of the same word. The words have been selected from the Workshop 3 (Combat Zone®) of the Read 180® Stage C rbook. They can be used with students who are not using the Read 180® program as vocabulary builders or daily warmups. Each word study is about half a page long and designed to take about 5- 10 minutes of class time. These are especially useful for students who are English Language Learners or who simply struggle with reading fluently and using words properly in sentences. Each review is slightly different and include things such as example sentences, fill in the blanks, creating synonyms and antonyms, and using various forms of the words. There are 16 word study cards in this document, which are: ambush, complicated, hesitate, peril, ponder, site, grenade, reality, repellent, certainly, gape, inscribe, unfurled, peer, allegedly, and amid. A definitions list page is included, so you do not need to be using the Read 180® program to use these lessons in your classroom. The packet is 11 pages long and can be copied off for each student to write in, or projected on an overhead for students to answer. A full answer key is included.
