I use this with my science students to start class and they use their textbooks or other given resource to complete the entry. For students who need modifications, I have them complete X out of the 7 boxes. It takes about ten minutes for the students to complete and me to go over. An easy way to get students on task right away!
I have students complete these every Mon-Thurs. This takes up exactly one sheet front and back). On Friday, we have "Flashcard Friday" and the students review the words and create flashcards on Quizlet or by hand. The students use that as a study/review tool for the unit. At the end of the unit, students staple them all together and I collect as a packet for a grade.
