Common Core stresses the importance of vocabulary in every subject. Provide your students with a language-rich learning environment. It will have a lasting impact. This matching activity focuses on winter verbs. (This set is also useful for introducing or reviewing the suffix -ing.)
The jigsaw puzzles are self-correcting, students automatically know when they have the correct answer. This hands-on activity can be used to introduce or review words. The puzzle pieces fit perfect in a pocket chart but they also can be used on a table or floor.
The puzzles are perfect for individual, small groups or whole class activities. Jigsaw puzzles are a simple low maintenance center that students love. The visuals used in this resource enhance learning concepts and vocabulary.
