Research and good old teaching experience lets us know that the more contacts-with and usage of vocab. words, the better chance of retention, which is exactly why I created these pages. Use these pages with ANY text, fiction or non-fiction. Teachers/students choose the words.
Designed for multiple uses, multi-use.
-identify part of speech and add an explanation using a sentence frame
-add related words/word families list/groupings
-use the word correctly in a sentence
-get page checked by teacher/aide/fellow student/parent- then page prompts fixing of sentences, if needed
-page also prompts read-aloud of sentences for verbal use/sharing
-2 versions for scaffolding purposes or choice options
-make multiple copies of each sheet (choose 1 of the sheets) and make double sided; make multiples if necessary
-each sheet allows 2 word studies; double-sided allows 4 word studies; make into packets for more words
Flexible use options:
-use as part of a reading program
-use for independent reading, students' choice of words
