This is a STAAR Lingo word wall put together by several reading teachers on my campus. We looked through the 3rd-6th grade Reading STAAR tests and found words that might be tricky or confusing for our students.
For example, convey, reveal, & illustrate all mean "show".
We then sorted them into eight categories: Show, Poetry, Drama, Theme, Proof, Figurative Language, Story Structure, & Story Elements.
We will be adding to our STAAR Lingo Word Wall as we teach throughout the year and will be using the different terminology while teaching.
If you find any other confusing words, please email me at email@example.com, so that I can add to out list.
Also, if you use them in your class or blog about them, please email me to share... we love getting ideas from fellow teachers.
Thanks and please leave feedback!
I also have STAAR-ingo games for several grade in my store, check them out!
