Recently, I found myself thinking about the “Vocabulary Words: Twelve Months of Lists”
Vocabulary Word Lists: 12 Months of Lists+3 Bonus Lists
product that I offer in my TpT store, and I realized that I needed to explain why I chose only 20 words for each month’s list. Some teachers might desire 20 words per week, after all.
Many ways exist to offer students chances to make themselves understood with just the right word(s) beyond weekly word lists. vocabulary Middle School and High School students can also add words to their ,personal repertoires with a Word of the Day. That is how I created the original Vocabulary Word Lists: 12 Months of Lists+3 Bonus Lists.
Here are 12 more for you to use in whatever way you feel will benefit your students. As before, each list is composed of 20 words with definitions and their parts of speech.
Add to these my 32 lists (15 words each list) that compose my “Vocabulary SAT Word Lists and Quizzes (480 words)”
(Vocabulary: SAT Word Lists and Quizzes (480 words)
) and you have 56 weeks of words. That is 960 words!
The thirty writing ideas included in my
"Vocabulary: Twelve Months of Lists" posting also work with these lists.
More ideas for helping students make these words an active part of their speaking and writing repertoires can be found on:http://teachitwrite.blogspot.com/2013/04/word-up-with-power-of-words.html, and my post featuring vocabulary ideas: http://teachitwrite.blogspot.com/2013/09/wordle-me-this.html.
If you are interested I have created word clouds for each of the SAT Word Lists. You can check them out on
Vocabulary Word Clouds for SAT Lists 1-32
Now you can challenge students to add to their vocabulary knowledge daily, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. As always, my goal is to make your planning and teaching lives less stressful with my classroom tested, tweaked activities. Enjoy!
Enjoy a Teach It Now Day,
