We will be learning 42 new reading terms this year. Each week every student will be introduced to 4-7 new words. We will review these words EVERY DAY and each class will compete against one another to see who can recall them the fastest. We will also be playing games such as Around the World, Vocab. Volley, and Memory Match to practice using the new terms.
Every Friday their will be a quiz over the vocabulary words. I will have a bulletin board in my room titled "Vocabulary All-Stars" and every student will have their name on the board. Each time a student receives a 100 on a quiz they will also earn a star to put by their name. There are 12 quizzes before we have final exams. We will have a final exam every Friday until the end of the year!
It is very important that your students study these vocabulary terms and know them backwards and forwards by the time our STAAR Reading Assessment rolls around in the spring! Please take the time to help them study these terms daily!
