The activities in this printable are intended to supplement the Houghton Mifflin vocabulary readers for Theme 6. I use these vocabulary activity pages along with the readers in my weekly literacy centers. We know that students need to be exposed to new vocabulary multiple times in a variety of ways before they retain it and that students are more likely to retain words taught in context than in isolation. These printables give students an opportunity to apply their new vocabulary by matching, describing, comparing, giving their opinion, finding details and categorizing.
Titles included (with corresponding anthology title):
The Art Lesson by Tomie dePaola
Moses Goes to a Concert by Isaac Millman
The School Mural by Sarah Vazquez
