Building Vocabulary For Older Students!

Many have requested MORE activities for older students!  Well, who couldn't use more activities to build vocabulary!!  After browsing age-appropriate vocabulary lists and books, I developed a fun activity to build vocabulary.

In this file:

-Vocabulary Matching Cards: On each card is a vocabulary word and another with it’s definition.  Use these cards to teach, review, drill, and play memory matching games. 30 vocabulary words included!!

-Parts of Speech Sort: Use the vocabulary words (cards from matching cards activity) and sort by noun, verb, and adjective to assist in comprehension of new terms.

-Identifying Synonyms Game:  Students will pick a card and read the sentence provided.  Each sentence will have a vocabulary word bolded and underlined.  They must use their knowledge of the definition and synonyms to select a synonym from the choices provided.  Each card has a point value, 1-5.  At the end of the game, the students will add up their points to determine a winner.

-Review Worksheets: Use these sheets to have students review and document new vocabulary words. (1 graphic organizer and 3 matching review worksheets)

Grab this fun vocabulary-building download at my TpT store HERE!!!

Does this activity look like something you would be interested in?!  How about a chance to win it in a giveaway!!  Leave a comment below including your email to get a chance!!  I will announce a winner on Monday, January 28th in the evening!!
