Vocabulary Instruction For the Year:
Vocabulary Instruction for the Year is a complete, 141-page packet that includes everything you need to teach a new vocabulary word each day, practice words through a learning activity or game every other week, and more! This packet is based on best practices, and includes the following that are recommended for best vocabulary practices: giving students opportunities to form their own sentences using words, giving them daily opportunities to create their own examples and non-examples of words, asking students to discuss words with a partner, asking students to draw a picture/visual representation to illustrate the word, giving students opportunities to use the words in games and word play in pairs, groups, and independently.
Included in this packet:
-Instructions and Tips
-Teacher's complete list of words and definitions by week
-Student's 40-page journal-1 page per week, with full-color cover, with each daily word and it's definition, as well as space for student to write their own sentence with the word, provide examples/synonyms and non-examples/antonyms of the new word, and 2 days a week, draw an illustration of the word. Every other week, Friday does NOT include a new word, since that is when an activity/game takes place. Instead there are directions to complete an activity that includes discussing words with a partner.
-Student's 40-day journal that includes daily words but NOT definitions, if you wish for students to look up their own definitions
-10 different vocabulary activities/games, each used twice in the packet, and each focusing on the most recent words. Some activities use all words used up to that point. Total of 20 vocabulary activities, each with instructions and other learning materials needed to complete the activity/game. Two of the activities are unique Cloze stories that were created specifically for this packet.
