Vocabulary Strategy Bulletin Board! Grades 2 and up!
Included in this product are 18 ways to teach students to use different clues when reading to figure out words they don’t know.
Each mini poster measures about 5 X 8 with two strategies per sheet. Each strategy provides an example and a tip. There are visuals on most of the strategies. I made Synonym Clues and Antonym Clues which are the same as contrast clues and comparison clues but I wanted you to have both depending on what language you use with your kids.
The following strategies are part of this product:
-using text features
-connect to other words
-use a known word part
-read around the word
-say it out loud
-multiple meanings (especially helpful for ELLs)
-use prefixes and suffixes
-use part of speech clue
-Bold or italicized words
-inference or general clues
As you can see there are more strategies than you need! However, by getting them all you have your bases covered if you change grades! This also allows you to differentiate for all your learners!
Introduce a few at a time and display them so that your kids have a quick visual reference. In no time, you will have them all up and the kids will be on their way to figuring out those words that trip us us—without our help!
