Learning vocabulary has never been more FUN! Vocabulary Treats is a set of 28 Task Cards for students in Grades 3–5. The activities are ideal for motivating your students to explore and become familiar with the dictionary.
Students are given a vocabulary usage question with four choices. They write the letter that appears in front of the best answer on their Student Record Sheet. The activities are humorous so kids have fun while increasing their vocabulary.
Here is an example of one of the Vocabulary Treats Task Cards:
What do you do if you babble?
a. take a bubble bath
b. dribble a ball on a court
c. talk foolishly or too much
d. work a short amount of time
An Answer Key is included for self-correcting as well as an Award Certificate for completion of the unit. Templates are included so you can add individualized Task Cards.
Vocabulary Treats is great for independent seatwork, for small groups at a learning center, for a game of Scoot (directions included), or a Scavenger Hunt to get kids up and moving! Just place the Task Cards around your room for students to find. They write the answers on their Student Record Sheet.
