This is a short list of weekly lessons/games that can be used for the entire year.
For 15-20 minutes of whole group time, you can focus on these lessons weekly.
These lessons work best in conjunction with an appropriately leveled vocabulary list and before center time.
4 of the 9 weekly centers we have are vocabulary based and permanent:
1) write your words on an index card and illustrate on the back
2) find a song with the most of your words this week in it, print the lyrics, clean up if necessary with synonyms and rewrite/type
3) word search - find and define
4) vocabulary builder worksheet
