Use this graphic organizer to help students learn- understand and recall new vocabulary. It can help students learn vocabulary from the curriculum, for example, vocabulary from Language Arts novels or Social Studies textbooks or for state testing, etc.
This organizer emphasizes not only the importance of understanding what the new word means, but also on how to retrieve the word and definition from memory. Students can work together or individually and share their sentences and memory strategies. It is also a great tool for teaching students how to study for tests.
Two options are available- with and without a block for drawing a picture of the word/definition. An example is also provided.
