PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Posting a word wall of literary terms is the best way to improve your students' academic vocabulary. I use them every day in my classroom, and I'm sure you will too!

This set of literary term posters and notes will enable your students to refine their literary conversational skills and enhance their reading skills. Kids are much more likely to use the terminology if they can double check the definition first. These posters make it easy!

This resource includes 72 color and 72 black and white posters. It also includes folding notes that students can fill out based on the information on the posters.

These posters will make a wonderful-looking, practical bulletin board display. You can hang them up and have students fill out their notes from their seats or by walking around. You can even jigsaw by having students work in groups to write assigned definitions and then regroup to share. Then everyone will have all of the notes.

If you want to use the ink-saving black and white versions, you can pass them around the room. Assign each student to write the definition and then contribute to the classroom décor by coloring a little bit of each poster. Everyone will benefit. The kids will have ownership of the assignment. You will have colorful posters. And the kids will be learning while they have a little fun!

In the future, encourage students to use their words when discussing literature. They should also underline or circle these nonfiction academic vocabulary words and terms when they find them on assignments. They are used a lot!
