Product Description
My students love Ylvis’ song “What does the Fox Say?” I decided to keep them engaged in their word of the day activities by adding the fox element. I played the song for my students the first day I passed out the papers. After that first day, I limit playing the song to once a week, I can only take so much!

The worksheet includes a section for the word of the day, a sample sentence created by the teacher or exemplar texts, predicted meanings through context clues, part of speech, source of definition, the actual definition, syllables, synonyms and antonyms, as well as a place for a sketch of the word.

The sample sentence is key to help students work on using their context clues when determining the meaning of a word. I expect my students to complete the predicted meaning prior to looking up the actual definition. My students may use all of their resources when finding a definition, which is why it asks them to say where they got the definition. This can be in a dictionary, glossary, or through a dictionary website or app.

I’ve included a word document with text boxes overlaying the worksheet so that you can customize the worksheet to fit your word of the day. I am currently working on creating a packet to include words for every day of the school year. I’ve also included a word document for the speech bubble. This plus the fox image are put up on my whiteboard for the students to see daily.

The common core standards for language that I focused on were
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.2.4a Use sentence-level context as a clue to the meaning of a word or phrase.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.2.4e Use glossaries and beginning dictionaries, both print and digital, to determine or clarify the meaning of words and phrases.

If you notice any misspellings or grammar errors please send me a message and I will fix it immediately. This has been checked and double-checked but we all make mistakes!
