Ready to help your students enrich their vocabulary this year?
How It Works
Step One (optional): Use the digital slides to predict and discuss. What does this word mean? Have you heard it before?
Step Two: Post the word cards on your vocabulary bulletin board or a piece of chart paper where they will stay for the week. Have students use the new words to write sentences or paragraphs.
Step Three: Use the words throughout the week in your classroom! Use the new vocabulary in your teaching if possible, and encourage your students to use the new words in their writing.
Step Four: At the end of each week, add the words to a word wall, where they can stay as student references all year long!
