Vocabulary Roll with Tier 2 Words
for 2nd-6th grade (you may use it with other grades depending on skill level).
There are separate files that contain Tier 2 vocabulary words for 1st through 6th grade (I included the first day pack because some of my students needs to start with lower level words when we begin this instruction).
This produce was designed to be a fun way to practice vocabulary. The word choices are Tier 2 vocabulary words by grade level. Tier 2 vocabulary words are considered academic words that a student will encounter in all subject areas. They are words that are important for comprehension skills. I also included a fill-able blank template to customize the words to your lesson. There are 30 words per grade level included in this download.
To use: The student will check if they have heard the word before or not before they roll. The student will then roll a dice and follow the directions at the top of the page. The different directions they could roll are: draw a picture, write a sentence, write an antonym, write a synonym, write the definition, and free choice.
If your student checked [no] (they haven’t heard the word before), you may need to teach them the word by providing examples. I sometimes will do this and have them guess the definition based on context clues.
Provide the student access to a dictionary or thesaurus during this activity.
