Vocabulary enrichment is so important to student learning. So much of our day is focused on learning vocabulary words tied to specific subjects that sometimes the basics are pushed aside. This past year I implemented a Morning Math Meeting into my classroom - a daily spiral that introduced new concepts and reviewed old. I wanted the same idea during a daily class meeting for vocabulary.
Each day my students will meet on the carpet and complete different vocabulary activities to learn new words. This product contains the headers that I will put in my pocket chart, as well as the activities that we will do with them.
*Wonderful Weekly Words
*Word of the Week
*Word of the Day
*Social Studies Vocabulary
*Parts of Speech
Some of these headers will go on other specific boards (Reading, Math, SS, and Science), I just wanted all vocabulary to match. There are also Parts of Speech headers that I'm planning on having students sort our Mentor Sentence words under.
10 different half page activities are also included, in addition to a workmat/journal page to add to student notebooks. Blank templates for both the headers and activities are included.
What I'm planning on doing each day:
Every day - Students will define or work with a Word of the Day.
Monday - They will also learn a new Homonym
Tuesday - They will learn a new Prefix or Suffix
Wednesday - They will learn a new Root word
Thursday - They will learn a new Character Trait
Friday - This will be a review day of all the words learned throughout the week in addition to "special" words that will change up the routine.
***Specific words to define are NOT included in this product. I do have a Word of the Day and Homonym Pack in my store if you need resources.
I hope this product helps you. Check out the preview to see what's included!
