If you're anything like me, I am always running out of time, but vocab instruction is so important. This year-long "word-of-the-day" bundle will help your kiddos learn some wonderful vocabulary in about 10 minutes per day. I designed this to be easy, fast, and fun for students, and I'm hoping it does the same for you and your kiddos!
This version is for grades 3 and 4.
There is another version available for grade 5 and 6 listed here.
There is a foldable for each week of the school year that includes 4 vocabulary words. You print this one sheet of paper for each of your students, they fold this into fourths, and you're good to go for the entire week. Teach a new word Monday through Thursday, and then take a quiz on Friday.
Included are the following:
*A lesson plan format for the entire week.
*144 words of the day (36 foldables)
*9 crossword puzzles to review words learned during the month.
*Weekly Word cards to display on a bulletin board or front board.
When teaching a new word, students are asked to complete the following tasks:
*Find two antonyms for the vocab word (or synonym)
*Draw a picture to illustrate the word.
*Write a sentence using the word.
***There are two different versions included, as I had a few teachers request that I include a synonym on each day's foldable instead of an antonym. So, both files are included in the download.
This is very easy for you to print, and even easier to implement in your classroom!
I hope you enjoy!
