In order to create an assignment, you must first have lists saved on your List Management page and you must also have added students.
These example sentences use the words in context, and they are great for building “Hypothesis Sheets” to introduce the words.
Once you’ve created your list, use the following resources from The Literacy Cookbook’s “Building Robust Vocabulary” page, explained below. Sarah consults with schools on literacy instruction, curriculum development, data-driven instruction, and school culture building.
Do your students smile at you when you begin a vocabulary lesson? Are they willing to try using the words in their own speaking and writing?
Over the years, I’ve noticed that when I’m “on” with my vocabulary instruction, my students are, too. In contrast, when I rush through vocabulary instruction because of time constraints, lack of preparation, or simply lack of enthusiasm, my students can read me like an open book.
