This package contains CLOZE (fill in the blank) worksheets and Crossword Puzzles to teach, re-teach, practice, or assess vocabulary in the fourth grade Treasures anthologies from units 1 through 6. We have used these puzzles to challenge students, to enrich and engage learning, and as a center or centers with teacher or parent helpers to teach and provide practice for reading vocabulary and definitions.
This bundle combines 2 products into 1 for a great value!.
Also included is the corresponding answer key for each worksheet and a word list for each crossword puzzle. When we developed these worksheets we used all of the key vocabulary words and some supplemental words. Some of the words were used within the context of each story, and some of the words we used outside of the story’s context to challenge the students and their understanding of each word’s definition. We included the key vocabulary words from the following anthologies:
Unit 1 Let’s Explore: The Mystery of the Missing Lunch, A Walk in the Desert, Animals Come Home to Our National Parks, The Astronaut and the Onion, The Raft
Unit 2 Take a Stand: Mighty Jackie, My Diary from Here to There, Stealing Beauty, How Ben Franklin Stole the Lightning, Dr. Mr. Winston
Unit 3 Making a Difference: Roadrunner’s Dance, My Brother Martin, Kid Reporters at Work, Mystic Horse, Snowflake Bentley
Unit 4 Viewpoints: Dear Mrs. LaRue, The Blind Hunter, The Power of Oil, Adelina’s Whales, At Home in the Coral Reef
Unit 5 Relationships: Because of Winn-Dixie, Ranita, the Frog Princess, Exploring the Undersea Territory, Me and Uncle Romie, Wild Horses
Unit 6 Discovery: The Gold Rush Game, The Cricket in Times Square, Meet a Bone-ified Explorer, My Brothers’ Flying Machine, The Life and Times of Ants
Vocabulary development is a key focus area in the new Common Core Standards, because students must increase their knowledge of academic language by growing their vocabulary. These worksheets align with the Common Core Standards for Language Arts under Language: Conventions, effective use and vocabulary, understanding words and their relationships, and acquisition of new vocabulary.
Each product in this bundle can be purchased separately but purchased together are a great value.
