Use this Vocabulary Worksheet resource to move new vocabulary words into your students' long term memory. Studies show that understanding the definition, connecting the word to a visual, and using the word in context helps students gain vocabulary skills. For example, students will remember what the vocabulary word means and use the word in writing and when speaking more often.
This easy-to-use resource can be used individually, with partners or small group, as well as whole class. Students can write or draw the word, write the definition, draw a picture, and write a sentence using the vocabulary word either by making one up or gathering an example from a text.
You can use this as a weekly Vocabulary page to refer back to each day or staple multiple copies together to make a Vocabulary booklet. You can also make a poster size at Kinkos or another printing company to use as a model or another reference in the room each week.
