Description

Tier II Vocabulary consists of words that occur frequently in academic text at the 3rd and 4th grade level. The Common Core State Standards put a strong emphasis on nonfiction, and informational text. It is important that students understand Tier II words to improve their comprehension. Students may find these words when reading Science, Social Studies and English text and we can have a bigger impact on a student’s academic performance when we concentrate on teaching them. The words used on my task cards are not a complete compilation and come from a variety of 3rd and 4th grade vocabulary lists. I used what made sense in the context of the paragraphs. There are a total of 106 words used in the text. A few are used more than once and cover multiple meanings.

There are two sets of 16 sheets of task cards. 16 comprehension stories. Each sheet has the following;

• Card 1 is the text passage with underlined vocabulary words.

• Card 2 includes the vocabulary words with meanings.

• Card 3 are comprehension questions from the text. Some of the answers are to be inferred by clues found in the text.

• Card 4 includes the answers to the comprehension questions.

1. Set 1 has the answers but they are scrambled and the student will need to find the correct answers from the list. These are marked with Find the Answer

Answer blocks have been added to make this a TPT Digital Activity

2. Set 2 has the correct answers provided and is marked with Answers

The cards are together on one sheet so you can choose if you would like to make double backed cards. For example card two (vocabulary meanings) would make a good backing for card 1 the (text).

You could also cut the right side off and make a double backed card with the card 1 (text) and the comprehension questions folded up to make the other side. You could keep all of them together and fold the right side back providing word meanings and answers to the comprehension questions when it is flipped over.

You can choose the set according to the abilities of your students. Set 1 with the mixed answers still requires a student’s thought process to get an answer. Set 2 provides answers for a flip side if you choose to make the cards part of a learning center and self checking.

I find having both sets allows me to differentiate the instruction for different needs and methods of instruction.
