Vocabulary Burst: Grades 4-6
This game is aligned to the common core standards! It can be used to target introduction of new vocabulary terms, how the terms relate to synonyms and antonyms, shades of meaning for various words, idioms, and articulation carryover. Vocabulary terms were chosen with careful attention paid to frequently occurring Tier 2 vocabulary words from the fourth to sixth grade curriculum.
Personal Word Wall Booklet
This little booklet was created for students to use as a resource to compile a list of commonly used high frequency words and vocabulary words. Students will add words throughout the year as they are introduced by the teacher during word wall time or during the introduction of new units of study.
Writer's Workshop Mentor Texts Linky Party
The Best Story - one of the first books read each year in Writer's Workshop. It's great for teaching where writer's get their ideas. In the end, the main character learns that the best story comes from your heart. After reading it, give each student a paper heart and they fill it with words/pictures of the things/people they love. I'm interested in looking at this book.
