This bundle includes eleven distinct graphic organizers and handouts (twenty pages of materials in all!) based on the Common Core Language Standards for grades 6, 7, and 8.
The graphic organizers and handouts included support:
- work with context clues and text-based vocabulary (great for independent reading as well as core classroom literature)
- word previewing and metacognition
- in-depth word studies that use a variety of learning strategies, including visual strategies
- analysis of root words, prefixes, and suffixes
- understanding of word nuance, synonyms, and antonyms
Within this bundle are example pages that can be printed out for student scaffolding or kept for your own reference. Also provided are the relevant Common Core Language Standards for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. All handouts are created in a clean, student-friendly style and can be used with a variety of programs.
