These vocabulary study sheets were developed to use with Marzano’s six steps for vocabulary instruction.
After the teacher provides a description or example of the new terms (step 1), students can use these sheets to record their own descriptions, examples, or explanations (step 2). Students can also use these sheets draw pictures to represent their understanding of the terms (step 3). Three-hole punch these sheets and have students keep them in a binder or vocabulary notebook so that they can refer back to them at any time. Periodically, discuss the terms with students and have them go back to add a synonym, antonym, or part of speech for the word. Also, have students discuss the terms with each other and let them go back to tweak or add to their original description (steps 4 and 5). Use games to review the words and add to the students understanding of them (step 6). Check out my Treasures vocabulary games, including vocabulary matching and I have/Who has games.
