Product Description
I use these resources to teach vocabulary to my standard and special education high school English classes.

This is a growing bundle that will eventually contain 10 units with 10 words each.

This resource includes the following for each set of words: student worksheets; an accompanying PDF to project words, visuals, and definitions; ready-to-print word wall posters; a basic quiz; and links to pre-made Quizlet and Kahoot, and an antonyms crossword puzzle.

Student Worksheets: Each word is used in a sentence which the students closely read in order to guess the definition of the new word. To help increase comprehension and understanding of context clues, each word and sentence has an accompanying visual. There is a space for students to write down the actual definition and to write an original sentence using the word. The last part of the worksheet is a brief fill-in-the-blank paragraph to practice using the new words.

PDF Presentation: I go through the worksheets with the students so I've included a PDF with the sentences, visuals, and actual definitions. Each word has two pages: the first is the sentence and visual, the second is the definition and visual. This makes it easy to go through the words as a class and to make sure everyone gets the same easy-to-understand definition.

Word Wall: For each word I've combined the word, definition, visual, and sample sentence all on one paper. Just print and hang for a quick reference throughout the unit.

Antonyms Crossword Puzzle: One for each unit of ten words. The vocabulary words are the clues and the antonyms of the words are used to fill in the crossword puzzle. This can be used if students finish other work early, as an assignment on it's own, homework, or extra credit.

Quiz: The quiz contains just two sections: matching and original sentence. If the students can match the words to the definitions and can write a sentence using the word - they have a good understanding of the newly acquired vocabulary.
