Test Taking Reading Vocabulary All Students Should Know
- As a Reading Intervention teacher, one of my duties is to help prepare students for the standardized reading test.
-I have observed first-hand that many students have difficulty with the test because they do not know what the questions are asking of them often because they cannot pronounce an important term in the question (although they may know what the word means once hearing it) or they do not know what the term means.
- These 40 vocabulary terms occur often in reading test questions and I have found that many students are not familiar with them.
- How I Use These Vocabulary Terms- I help students decode the words and explain the definitions in terms of reading tests (definitions not included as it will be more beneficial for the teacher and students to come up with the definitions in "child- friendly" terms that they will understand and children will remember their own words much better than someone else's.)
Students record child- friendly definition on the provided sheets and cut into flashcards which can be used as a study aide.
