This vocabulary set includes the following words

  • bird

Students will find two pairs of words that are very similar.

When talking about bill and beak, students can talk about synonyms.

Covey and flock are another pair of similar words. For this pair, have students complete research to find the small differences.

A flock is typically used to describe a larger group of birds, often these birds are migrating.

A covey is usually a group of 8 to 12 birds. A covey might also be referred to as a small flock.

This bird vocabulary set includes:

Vocabulary word & definition cards – these words can be used for matching words and definitions. Along with sorting at a center, you could use these for whole class instruction. Give each student a card and they will find their partner.

Word map – if there are two or three important words you want students to master during your vocabulary study, you might use this page. Word maps give students to dig deeper into a word and really help students learn a new word. This is not something we would choose to do for every word.

Vocabulary check – this is a very open-ended word check. You will write in three words you want to check understanding of. Then, students can use words and pictures to share everything they know.

Fill in sentences – students will use the word bank to complete the sentences. This might be a task students work with a partner or small groups on. Allowing discussion will help students carefully place the words, especially the word pairs that are similar.
