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!!
