At the Vocabulary Center, students practice building their vocabulary. Students can complete a Word Sort activity and write the lists of words in their Notebook. They can make words with the prefix and suffix cards or cubes and record the words in their Notebook. They may also choose to complete a Vocabulary Boosters worksheet, complete a VersaTiles activity, or play with the Word Arcade.
I use a lot of word sorting activites from the "All Sorts of Sorts" book series. These word sorts are multi-leveled activities that allow students to use the various levels of knowledge they possess about how words work.
This skill building machine uses word games and puzzles. Boost skill on vocabulary, spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
Combining the captivating challenge of a puzzle with the purposeful practice of a workbook, this unique supplemental program offers a wealth of classroom-tested activities in which students can practice skills independently and at their own pace.
The activities in this book have students use a dictionary to answer questions such as, "Where would a brooch be worn?" and "Will a wave always get you wet? What else could it do?"
I choose one page from this book to put in the center each week. Alternatively, you could choose some questions from the book and put them on task cards.
