WORD WORK Program - 3rd Grade - Nine Weeks
In this pack you will find one nine week set of three words per week to use as your WORD WORK PROGRAM.
Each student will need one copy of the page, a scissor, glue stick, pencil, colored pencils or crayons and a journal or spiral book of some kind. Or you may choose to have the students get five pages a week of regular notebook paper and put them in a three prong folder.
This correlates to Common Core as far as the Word Work goes. It can be used in centers, for bell work, or in place of regular journals.
The purpose of this WORD WORK PROGRAM is to expand the children’s vocabulary, and sometimes force them to look up words they don’t already know or haven’t already heard. The hope is that at the end of the nine week program the teachers and students enjoy learning new words and want more!
This is NO work for the teacher once you get your students indoctrinated into the system. All you have to do is check to make sure each student is understanding the three words by the end of the week! The other students can help out with that.
This is especially good for ELL or below level students, because it is short and fun, although every student will benefit from doing the five lessons a week for twenty minutes. Students should be able to generate interest in new words and put them into use every day. Novels should be easier to read as the students gain a sense of more and more words and their meanings. The students can also evaluate their own progress as they go back and flip through the previous weeks and see their own handwriting, spelling and story building.
Every child in your class will build on their current vocabulary and learn when and how to use words they previously did not know.
I hope you and your class enjoys this program. Please check out my other packages on Teacher Pay Teacher.
