Tier Two vocabulary words are used by mature language users across several contexts. Because of their lack of redundancy in oral language, they create a specific challenge when they’re primarily met in text. The Common Core suggest that it’s important to target specific instruction on Tier II vocabulary words to help students develop a deep understanding that cannot be acquired through independent reading.
These Tier II Vocabulary Decks are the perfect product to target key words. Included are 6 decks, one for each grade Kindergarten through 5th grade. These may be used to preteach, teach or reteach vocabulary. Each of the six decks include 70 teacher cards. These cards feature a color graphic along with a sentence using the vocabulary word in context. Also included in each deck are 70 student cards. These cards feature a black and white graphic and a space to write the meaning of the word. The student cards may be pasted into a “Vocabulary Notebook” or placed on a binder ring to create a student deck.
It’s important to note that many of these words are seen across grade levels on different lists. Therefore, you don’t need to strictly adhere to the listed grade level.
Thanks so much for considering this product to preteach, teach, or reteach vocabulary!
