Science can feel like a completely different language! As with any language, fluency (the ability to quickly recall information) is important to mastering scientific concepts.
Yes, we all need our students to think deeply about scientific concepts, but when a child doesn’t have a basic understanding of the vocabulary, he/she simply cannot handle deeper material.
The product contains 129 vocabulary fluency strips and 72 example cards (3 to a page). A list of all vocabulary and definitions is also available so that the sets fit on a single sheet of paper for easy copying and distribution to students. These are excellent sorts for interactive notebooks!
