One of the biggest factors in a student’s long-term success is academic background knowledge. You can build background knowledge in three ways. Experience, Reading, or Vocabulary instruction. Without the academic vocabulary knowledge, a student will sit through lesson after lesson not really understanding much of what is being said or done...this resource of 65 words and variety of activities can help students have the background knowledge they need!


Word Sorts
Word study is filled with word sorts. Sorting is a powerful thinking task where students must identify similarities and characteristics. Then group items based on those characteristics. For vocabulary development, sorting is based on conceptual meaning. Not spelling or phonics…that’s for decoding and writing. But to develop understanding – you must do concept sorts. Concept sorts allow students to build massive amounts of academic background knowledge.

Interactive Notebook Pages
Two types of note pages are provided. One is similar to Marzano's method. It provides space for student description, a picture, and synonyms and antonyms. It also provides students with a chance to self-assess on each word. The other note page allows students to tap their prior knowledge and to paraphrase the teacher's description of the word.

Three Quizzes
The quizzes provide an opportunity for students to assess and practice their understandings of these words. There are matching tasks, fill-in-the-blank cloze sentences, and picture matching.

Two crosswords are provided for fun practice, homework, or warm-up tasks. They also are great for teamwork or assessment tasks.
