Students get to create a tri-fold brochure of Vocabulary Words, Definitions, Parts of Speech, Synonyms, Antonyms, and Analogies.
An additional printable page for illustrating vocabulary terms is also included.
This tri-fold can be used as a study guide for tests or as an ongoing assignment to accompany the reading text from which vocabulary terms have been selected.
Sometimes, I let this tri-fold take the place of a vocabulary quiz! After completing all of the activities involved in this tri-fold, an in-depth study of their terms has been completed. Isn't that the point of vocabulary words anyway? We do not want them memorizing words; we want them learning them!
Students complete a section or two each day (in class or for homework) until the tri-fold is completed. In the end, they've done quite a bit with their vocabulary!
This has worked wonders with students that shut down with the drone of note taking or copying definitions. Not only that, because they are continuously applying their words' meanings in different activities, they learn them long before they even realize it!
This word study activity sheet is not limited to language arts.
It is a great tool for social studies, science, and other areas too!
PLEASE NOTE: I HAVE A 2ND VERSION OF THIS VOCAB FOLDABLE available in my store! It is SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT IN LAYOUT AND CONTAINS A "RELATED FORMS" SECTION. IF YOU HAVE PURCHASED IT ALREADY, PLEASE BE MINDFUL THAT THIS ITEM SERVES SAME PURPOSE BUT IS AN ADDITIONAL TOOL TO ADD TO YOUR VOCABULARY SKILL BUILDING FILE (and something a little different than other version).
Prior to purchasing, please decide if you want this version, version 2, or both! ;)
Thanks for stopping by my store!
