Here are a few activities ready to go just to make your day as a teacher a tad bit easier! I've used all of these with my Gifted 7th and 8th graders when we study SAT Vocabulary. However, they can easily be used for any set of vocabulary you may need your students to learn.
This file contains two different types of Frayer Model cards, a variety of requirements for index/flash cards, and Vocabulary Think-Tac-Toe- which is my favorite! The 9 options have been arranged so that any way the students draw their line- diagonal,across, etc.- they will have at least one challenging choice. With the Think-Tac-Toe, I've included information to complete Vocabulary Linear Arrays. You can also use the arrays as a separate activity. It sure does get the students pushing their thinking skills further than just copying down the definition.
I'm sure your students will enjoy the different activities, and you will enjoy the ease of ready-made products. Be sure to look into my Reading Responses and Common Core Pack for more teacher easy supplies.
Thank you - happy teaching!
