The 7 types of syllables occur in all words of our English language. When students learn the 7 syllable types they are better able to break longer words into chunks. This helps our students decode unknown words as well as helps with spelling. If you teach your students the 7 syllable types you may find the classroom poster set helpful. When you download this file, you'll receive a printable for each of the 7 syllable types.
There are quite a few Common Core Standards related to vocabulary, and some are specifically tied to antonyms. These cards can help your students to sharpen not only their skills with antonyms, but also their abilities to use context clues. Perfect for centers and test prep.
This set is for grades 4-6, but a free set for grades 2-3 is also available.
Are you getting ready to teach about weather this spring? This set of vocabulary word cards covers many of the most-taught concepts. Use them for whole class teaching on the interactive white board, small group review, center activities, or your class writing center. Younger students would benefit from a matching game: print two sets, cut only one apart, and have your little learners match the cut cards to the board. You might even print two copies, each on a different color of pastel cardstock, for an easy-to-make memory game! One more literacy-related idea: put three cards out and give a clue like, "It's a kind of precipitation and it rhymes with brain"... or starts like rug, or has one syllable, or has a silent vowel,...endless review possibilities as the students examine the options and use their literacy knowledge to choose the correct card!
Always a great form to have on hand, this student information sheet can be filled out by parents when students arrive in your class on the first day, and then you have a handy reference right at your fingertips. It is always fun to read the comments on the back as well. :)
