PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

It is said that there are no magic bullets in education. I disagree. I have had countless teachers use these vocabulary worksheets, ideal for small group work, with forty or so curriculum related words, with constant success.

*High interest / High motivation / High excitement
*Administrators walk in while students are working on the puzzle and most are too engaged to notice they're being observed
*Ideal for long double periods
*Puts spotlight on hard workers and team players
*Students are using their knowledge and skills instead of being fed knowledge
*Regularly see students high five each other when nearing completion
*A focus on problem solving and communication
*Reinforces use of context clues to define vocabulary (State test skill)
*Teacher becomes “guide on side, not sage on stage”
*Perfect thirty minute rainy day / back up activity
*Literacy based activity
*Tied to Common Core Standards
*Works well in connection to biweekly readers like "Junior Scholastic"
*A student's vocabulary is the number one indicator of success at the high school and collegiate levels
*The worksheets look simple in design, but the students devour them
(It takes about 90 minutes to make each worksheet)
