We listened to the feedback and generated a second 'Vocabulary Strategies Packet'. The way we designed this packet is that it can be its own packet or it can in addition to our first Vocabulary Strategies Packet.
This packet includes a review of the 'Types of Context Clues' and practice defining and identifying the different types at both the sentence and paragraph level. These sentences and paragraphs are different from the ones in the first packet. This packet includes 30 sentences and 10 paragraphs. This packet also includes a newly generated Context Clue Bookmark. The bookmark is extremely helpful for the students while they are working on this packet in addition to generating carryover skills of utilizing this strategy while in their academic classrooms. This packet also includes a mini-lesson to focus their attention on defining Tier 2 vocabulary terms with the use of a graphic organizer. This packet also reviews Word Analysis that was covered in our first packet but this time we have included a graphic organizer to help break down the words. Tier 2 word lists are provided for both mini-lessons within the packet.
We are really excited to share this packet! Learning a variety of strategies to define unfamiliar/unknown vocabulary is essential for our students. This can help them comprehend the various texts better and perform better on their standardized tests. After working on this packet with our students we have seen increased results with their abilities to use context clues. They have all stated they were happy to have the additional trials for practice.
This download also includes an extremely thorough lesson plan that really outlines the way to approach this packet in addition, the resources we use to differentiate our instruction, goals associated with this packet, and evidence based research behind the different strategies utilized within this packet.
