  • The weekly lessons were carefully created to target 7th-grade vocabulary skills needed to help students understand words not only in the context of reading and in applying to their writing, but also in isolation and in oral communication.
  • The lessons and weekly vocabulary words are well researched and based on The Common Core and The Continuum of Literacy Learning, by Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell.
  • Each week you will introduce the weekly vocabulary words by following the teacher lesson planning pages.
  • Weekly words will be introduced before, during, and after reading the weekly passage with the class.
  • The teacher directions will give you all the information needed to understand when each word will be introduced within the lesson.
  • This method of teaching vocabulary goes way beyond the traditional approach of simply assigning words for the week and was created with well-grounded research in what students need to develop a rich vocabulary.

With these lessons and the framework for each week of learning, you will find this vocabulary instruction different in that it:

  • Focuses on making connections between new vocabulary and personal experiences, rather than simply memorizing a list of generic definitions and words.
  • Allows students several opportunities to play with words and their meanings, thinking deeply about how words can change meanings based on the context in which they appear.
  • Integrates vocabulary skills into all parts of the students’ day, including both the reading and writing workshops.
  • Teaches students to notice word meanings and how those meanings impact the overall message of a text or oral conversation.
  • Helps students understand the value of having a rich vocabulary.
  • Encourages learning through working with partners and in small groups.
  • Empowers students to be in charge of their own learning. By giving them the power to become active participants in the lessons, it makes learning so much more meaningful.
  • When learning becomes meaningful, students tend to work a whole lot harder to reach their highest potential!
  • Teaches students to be interdependent and accountable for each other’s learning.
