Shades of Meaning Vocabulary Word Center for CC 3L5
In my third grade class, students work together in small groups to differentiate and order synonyms from least to most. During Daily 5, they work on the weekly set of words for Word Work until they can determine what they think to be the best order. We started with a greater amount of words, but I've trimmed it down to 4 words in a set. This way, it doesn't take quite as long, but is still engaging.
On the student accountability sheet, words are defined and placed on a stair step graphic organizer from least to greatest. This sheet can be differentiated according to your needs. Students can draw a picture to illustrate the word, use it in a sentence, or write an antonym for the word.
-36 sets of words (4 words in each set)
-36 student accountability sheets
-One blank sheet (if you want them to come up with their own word set)
-Directions, hints, and pictures of examples
