Want a terrific way to start off the school year with your new fourth graders? How about reading Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing by Judy Blume! Of course you will want to help your students build their Tier 2 vocabulary as they read the book, and that’s exactly what this product will do!
Vocabulary is not learned in a single week. Students must interact with words in a variety of ways numerous times throughout the school year. Although most literature study packets contain vocabulary words, the necessary exposure and practice to the words are not usually provided. As a result, I have designed this product to introduce words and their definitions with interactive slideshows which can also be used repeatedly for review. In addition, there are fun and engaging games as well as three types of practice worksheets requiring students to process word meaning in a variety of ways. Finally, two kinds of assessments are provided. The multiple-choice one will give you a general idea of students’ knowledge of the words. The written-response assessment challenges students to use the meaning of the words to understand the context in which they are used.
