This product uses Tier 2 vocabulary (grades 6,7,8) in complex sentences for summarizing activities. A dictionary is suggested to help students identify meanings of unknown vocabulary with the activity. There are 10 examples at each grade level with the Tier 2 vocabulary highlighted in the text. The students listen to or read each passage and use a template to determine:
definitions of Tier 2 vocabulary
prior knowledge they used in determining context
opportunity to use Tier 2 vocabulary to create their own tangled up sentence examples for their peers
This packet has 15 passage pages with 30 total examples and two templates (one color, one black and white). It would be a great activity to use in speech therapy, special education classrooms or in social language therapy to address concise summarizing.
This packet targets vocabulary for grades 6,7 and 8 but could also be used through the high school level as well.
