This packet is designed for a weeks worth of vocabulary activities with any group of words. In our class, we use it weekly with groups of words that have the same theme (angry words, tired words, happy words, etc) to push our students to use Tier 3 words when describing characters in their talk and their writing, rather than ordinary "everyday" words. However, it can be used with any words and can work with a range of learners/ages.
Each day, students complete a different activity such as writing a definition in their own words, creating a sentence, illustrating a sentence with the word and organizing them from weakest meaning to strongest.
Working with the same words and doing a different activity each day for a week really helps students internalize their meaning. We hope you find this as useful as we do in our class!!
