Need a way to directly teach academic vocabulary? If you’re anything like me, I was looking for something that would be fun, engaging and yet rigorous. I didn’t want a multiple-choice-memorize-this-definition laundry list of worksheets. So, I created this… a YEAR-LONG Vocabulary Study created for high student engagement, open-ended and challenging.
This product teaches 284 tier 2 academic vocabulary words for grades 4-6. All learning and instructional routines are research-based and utilize visible thinking routines.

2 mini posters for students (colored).
26 page Student Vocabulary Notebook masters (black and white) with 3 example pages.
12 pages of Vocabulary Instructional Routine lesson plans (black and white). These are 6 lesson plans that can be used to teach any vocabulary word.

Five student desk tents for vocabulary jobs.
Materials and directions for two whole-class vocabulary games (9 pages).
