I'm always looking for fun, but meaningful, ways for my kiddos to practice their weekly vocabulary words or spelling words... sometimes it can be a challenge! When I heard of the idea to use our reading texts to do vocabulary words scavenger hunts, I thought - that's PERFECT! Here's what students get to practice while doing them...
- Gaining repeated exposure to new words.
- Using page numbers to navigate a story.
- Identifying the BEGINNING and END of a sentence (sounds easy, but is quite difficult for many students).
- Using knowledge of ABC order.
- Finding words in a glossary and distinguishing between the definition of the word and the example sentence.
- Creating an original sentence using the word in context.
Whew! That's an awful lot of great learning from just one weekly practice page! For a better look at what's included, AND THREE FREE SCAVENGER HUNT PAGES, just click on PREVIEW!
This set includes 30 weeks worth of vocabulary practice utilizing the Second Grade Treasures reading program. There are 3 formats provided for each week. You can choose the format you like and use it every week, or change it up each week and bring a little more variety into your routine!
***Includes EDITABLE Pages***
If you find that your version of Treasures has slightly different vocabulary words, I've included editable versions of each different format. Just type your words into the text boxes, print and they are ready to use!
The stories that correspond with the weekly vocabulary are as follows:
