I am so excited to offer this in my store! This year, my 3rd grade team and I, wanted to teach our weekly vocabulary lessons with an activity-based method rather than our old worksheets! So I have taken our weekly vocabulary words and turned them into fun activities for students to complete in small cooperative groups! The activities get kids up and moving around your classroom searching for vocabulary-related cards! There are 2 different vocabulary activities in this freebie set! Each activity is color-coded for a group (team) of students. After assigning a group of kids (about 3-6 kids per group) a team color, groups will go off and search for their team's color vocabulary cards to use while completing the activities on the recording form!
I really enjoy teaching vocabulary with this approach because of the classroom movement. The weekly vocabulary words can also be found in popular texts! So you may wish to read the story first and do the follow up vocabulary activities! Stories that are included in this freebie set are:
1.) Mailing May
