Since I feel the CC modules are short on vocab work, I have created homework activities for the first unit. I use the PowerPoints as flashcards that you can print off to hang in your classroom word wall and/ or send home to be studied for a weekly vocab exam. I do this vocab exam the same way I would a spelling test. I read off the definition of a word. They have to write and spell the word correctly on their paper. I've included a modified version of the test for students with special needs. I believe that repeated use of a few words is better than mere exposure to many. The PowerPoint cards are also placed into a box and made into one of my work centers in the classroom. Kids quiz each other or do a vocab activity with them. There is also a worksheet for homework for each book.
