Our students are familiar with Reading Street’s “Envision It! Picture Vocabulary Cards.” With each new story students are introduced to new words with the use of picture vocabulary cards. The word is introduced with a visual representation of the definition and additional activities such as a demonstration, application, and an activity on the back.
Knowing more sophisticated words—what they mean, how to spell and pronounce them—makes reading easier and writing more expressive.
Editors from American Heritage Dictionaries have chosen 100 words that are neither obscure nor outlandish that could give middle schoolers more aplomb and aptitude in their verbal encounters.
Task: Make your own “Envision It! Picture Vocabulary Card” - front and back. Select a vocabulary word from the list above. Be sure to check the part of speech. Is your word a noun, verb, or an adjective?
Requirements and Model Included.
