Reinforce Academic Vocabulary and Create Amazing Bulletin Boards at the Same Time!


Displaying academic vocabulary in the classroom is extremely important! Research shows that students need exposure to new vocabulary words multiple times before they reach mastery. So, what better way to provide this constant exposure than posting vocabulary words for students to reference throughout the year.  You will reinforce academic vocabulary and create AMAZING bulletin board displays at the same time!




I have vocabulary sets in my store for ELA and Math grades 3-6, as well as the critical verbs of the Common Core.  Each set contains ALL the words found in the Common Core standards for that grade level. You can even buy multiple grade level BUNDLES so you can review the previous grade level words or enrich with more advanced vocabulary.  Plus, if you switch grades - no worries, just print the new words from your My Purchases tab on TPT.

Themes include: Chevron, Polka Dot, Black & White, Bright Rainbow Colors, Animal Print, Nautical and MORE.   

How do I use these academic vocabulary sets in my classroom?? At the beginning of each unit, I pull out the appropriate words and take a day to discuss the new vocabulary.  My students write the new words in their vocabulary journals and they work to describe each word, identify synonyms and antonyms, and use them in a sentence.  Click HERE for a FREE SAMPLE of my vocabulary instruction companion packet to go along with the Critical Verbs vocabulary word wall set.  The next day I post the words on our bulletin board display and refer to them constantly throughout the unit.  I know I've done my job when I see my students walking up to the board to reference the words when needed!!  Score!!

Here are some pics of a custom black, white and lime green set I created to match the decor in my classroom!



This is my bright chevron Critical Verbs set!  I absolutely LOVE it!!! I have it posted on my closet doors.  


If you need some new bulletin board ideas, summer is the perfect time to plan out your displays for next year.  If you purchase now, you'll have all summer long to print, laminate and cut!!
