New Product Alert! Through our constant reflection process we have decided to make a supplemental vocabulary strategies packet. This packet does include a mini lesson to review with your students the two main strategies we teach when expecting our students to define unfamiliar/unknown vocabulary terms (i.e. context clues, structural analysis). This packet also includes a lesson plan and the common core state standards.
The target of this packet is to provide the students with an opportunity to review the previously taught vocabulary strategies (i.e. context clues and structural analysis). This also provides a location for the students to keep track of all the words they have found to be unfamiliar or unknown within a given text. (We do not provide a given text to go with this packet. Feel free to look at our other packets that do include some text). This packet has a graphic organizer that would allow for a list of 30 words. This supplemental packet can be used over and over again as the students continue to read a variety of texts (i.e. articles, novels, memoirs, etc.).
Remember, this is a packet that is best used if you have already thoroughly taught the vocabulary strategies so students can try to define unfamiliar or unknown vocabulary terms. We also sell a Vocabulary Strategies packet that thoroughly teaches those strategies. This packet would be more of a refresher for those strategies. The hope is that the students are at the point where they can attempt to utilize those strategies independently.
If you are looking for a more thorough introduction to vocabulary strategies in addition to a useful poster, please see our bundle; Vocabulary Strategies Packet Bundle.
