PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I also have my first set (List 1) of Rock Star Reading Vocabulary words, as well as a bundled set of both List 1 and List 2! Both lists can stand alone as separate units but work great together, too! You can save 20% by purchasing the bundle!
Test Prep- Rock Star Reading Vocabulary {List 1}
Bundle: Rock Star Reading Vocabulary Lists 1 and 2
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I created these activities based on a need in my third grade class. As we prepared for the Texas standardized test (STAAR), we focused on strategies used when comprehending text passages. During this practice I was surprised to find that students were struggling with the vocabulary used in the questions. Often these words had more than one meaning or were words students hadn’t heard outside of an academic setting. However, these words appeared frequently in third grade text passages. Without fully understanding the meaning of the word, students were unsure exactly what was being asked.

We spent a week on the vocabulary activities (usually less than 15 minutes a day, 3-4 days of the week), and it paid off. Students were confident answering questions because they now understood the meaning of these important words.

The vocabulary words in this set are:
★meaning
★biography
★diagram
★summary
★imagery
★plot
★dialogue
★drama
★scene
★antonym
★synonym
★theme
