Teaching vocabulary is a must! It will improve your students’ reading comprehension, their writing word choice and their standardized testing scores. That’s big!
I found that adding ten minutes of vocabulary to my daily instruction made a huge difference. I love having a routine!
Monday: introduce word definitions and sentences
Tuesday: antonyms and synonyms
Wednesday: roots, prefixes and suffixes
Thursday: draw pictures to represent the words
Friday: play a review game and take an assessment.
I put together a resource that includes everything that you will need to teach, practice and assess vocabulary words. I carefully researched and chose tier 2 words that show up often in grade level text and on standardized tests.
