We are creating a series of vocabulary sets to be used as a word of the day in your classroom. Each set will include materials that can be used to help you practice and review the word of the day with your students.
Set 1 includes the following words: obstacle, bland, duration, jubilation, thwart
Large vocab cards Use these to display the word of the day 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 word and definition in the classroom. Or, print and laminate for students to match during a center or as group work.
Definition Page This page includes all five words along with their definitions. Designed to be added to a vocabulary notebook.
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.
