This SMARTBoard Notebook file is intended to provide students practice with SOL 4.4 (vocabulary/word analysis skills). 18 interactive questions are presented in a manner similar to those found on the end-of-year electronic Reading SOL test. 11 of the 18 questions are technology-enhanced items (TEI), and the rest are multiple choice. In addition, 15 of the questions are stand-alone items; the remaining questions must be answered after reading an accompanying passage.
I like to use this as a small-group or whole-class review (you can also print the slides so that students have their own copies as you go through the questions). Immediate feedback is available on each screen. A separate answer key is also included along with teacher notes and directions for use.
SOL 4.4a: use context to clarify meanings of unfamiliar words*
SOL 4.4b: use knowledge of roots and affixes*
SOL 4.4b: use knowledge of synonyms and antonyms*
SOL 4.4b: use knowledge of homophones
SOL 4.4c: use word-reference materials including the glossary, dictionary, and thesaurus*
SOL 5.4b: use context and sentence structure to differentiate among multiple meanings of words
*The Virginia DOE suggested that students need extra practice with these standards (according to 2013-2014 reading test data).
