Weekly Themed Vocabulary Words & Activities – Set 3 (Reptiles)

Reptile Vocabulary Resources from The Curriculum Corner FREEThis is the third set in our series of weekly thematic vocabulary word sets to coincide with science or social studies units of study.   Each set includes materials that can be used to help your students practice and review the words.

Set 3 focuses on reptiles and includes the following words:  reptile, turtle, tortoise, terrapin, snake, lizard, crocodile, alligator, tuatara, cold-blooded, egg, vertebrate, scales, herpetologist

Large vocab cards  Use these to display words at the front of the classroom or on the door as students enter the classroom.  These are full page cards with one word.

Vocabulary & Definition Matching Cards  Use these to display the words and definitions in the classroom, or print, laminate and cut apart for students to match during a center or as group work.

Definition Page  This page includes all vocabulary words along with their definitions.  Designed to be added to a vocabulary notebook if needed.

Vocabulary Fill-In  This is a simple sentence fill-in and one way for students to show their comprehension of the vocabulary words.

The following are resources that will stay the same each week:

Vocabulary Word Map  Designed to help students develop a deep understanding of each word.  Students are asked to record the definition, synonyms, a picture and to form their own sentence.

Vocabulary Assessment  Write each word in the box.  Students need to explain the meaning of each word.

Vocabulary Clouds  Designed to be used as a more open-ended assessment.  Write one word on each cloud.  Students should then be instructed to share all they know about the word around and in the cloud.

I have been looking at your amazing website! I have printed a lot of things from here and I definitely have thank you, my job has been a bit easier with the free printables that have helped me keep everything organized! I wish you had all these vocabulary cards and activities in Spanish though :( It's hard to find great materials like this in the foreign language. Thanks again!!!!!!

Hi Celine and thanks so much for your kind words. We are glad that you have found things that have made your life easier. Unfortunately we aren't fluent in Spanish and it tends to cost quite a bit to get resources translated, so we aren't able do that for most things. If we ever find someone who is willing to help us out with translations for free, we will work on that! If you are qualified and would like to translate these vocabulary activities...shoot us an e-mail and we can talk! If we have the wording, we can typically create the resources from the templates we already have.
