Math in Focus - Singapore Math Vocabulary & Definitions:
Vocabulary knowledge is an essential component for understanding concepts and ideas. Vocabulary cards & definitions can be used in word rings or added to word walls as introduced in each chapter.
- WORD RING – Vocabulary words can be printed on card stock and added to a ring by using a hole puncher. You can print vocabulary for each chapter in a different color, on card or laminate if desired. I sometime have students write the chapter number on each card for easy reference if not printing on different colored paper.
1. Print page 1. Place printed page back in printer (to print on the back of the page) and print same page number. This will give you a card with the vocabulary word on one side and its definition on the other. Repeat this process for each individual page. Using a hole puncher, punch cards at the top corner for each and add to a ring.
2. Print each page. Cut each vocabulary word with its definition lengthwise.
Using a hole puncher, punch cards at the top corner for each and add to a ring.
-WORD WALL - add vocabulary cards to word wall as each chapter is introduced.
