This is a series of 22 vocabulary lessons in one zip file. The words were taken from Marzano lists for grades 3-5 and include vocabulary for language arts, math, science, and social studies. Each lesson includes a word list, two fill-in the blank worksheets with word bank, a word search (created on the Teaching Made Easier website), and an "I have...Who has..." activity for practice and review. The “I have…Who has” activity works well if printed on cardstock and cut apart. Students can use the cards independently or with a partner or small group. I have also included a list of the six steps recommended by Marzano for learning vocabulary along with some open worksheets for student use.
These lessons can stand alone as vocabulary instruction or can be paired with other existing programs. The words included work well as Tier 2 and Tier 3 vocabulary. Knowledge of this type of vocabulary will be important when shifting to the common core standards. Spelling the words is not a focus in these lessons. Students should concentrate on understanding the meanings to improve overall comprehension.
