Explicit and direct teaching of vocabulary has been proven to bolster comprehension enhancing overall reading performance. This set includes the following word wiz sets for September, October, November, January, February and March. (I use December as a review month and switch to testing vocabulary in April.) This set will give you over 60 base words to teach. These words were selected based on the frequency in which they are found in text and used in conversation. I introduce five new words each week, add to that the related words and synonyms and antonyms, and you can grow your students' tier two vocabularies by 40 words a month!
Included in this set are the following:
-Vocabulary journal printables
-Vocabulary words, definitions and cloze sentences for each word (pocket chart size)
-Meaningful vocabulary practice sheets
-Sentence writing sheet
-Lanyard word cards
-Vocabulary game spinners
Check the preview to see if the words included fit your students' needs.
Words are NOT seasonal and sets do not need to be introduced in any particular month.
