Not only will this set provide you with year-long test prep of the Critical Verbs of the Common Core, but it will also create an AMAZING display on your bulletin board!

Are your students struggling with understanding the critical verbs in the Common Core Standards? These verbs are tricky and students cannot perform well on THE TEST if they do not know what the questions are asking them to do!!!

You must expose your students to these critical academic vocabulary words. And what better way to do that then to teach each word deliberately and then post for students to reference all year long!
