Vocabulary! We know that vocabulary strongly influences comprehension and success on achievement tests. We can support the development of academic and high-level vocabulary with direct vocabulary instruction.
Word Workout is a set of activity cards (25 in all) created to build the oral and written vocabulary of students. These fun, engaging cards will help your students develop an appreciation for interesting words.
Great for vocabulary notebooks, morning jump starts, word of the day/week or in a literacy station!
I've also included a resource page which addresses the following questions:
What is direct vocabulary instruction?
How do I identify the best words to teach?
How do I explicitly teach vocabulary words?
