Vocabulary Development Resources from TeachersFirst
This collection of reviewed tools and resources from TeachersFirst promotes vocabulary development and skills for students to improve and master daily vocabulary, subject matter terms, speech/language vocabulary, and ESL/ELL language. Some are tools for study and practice of terms in any class--including world languages, while others focus specifically on written and spoken English. Be sure to check "In the classroom" for ways each resource might help in your teaching area. Share your favorites on a free TeachersFirst public page for students and parents to use for vocabulary practice outside of class.
Grades6 to 12
In the ClassroomInclude this link on your teacher web page or share it on the your interactive whiteboard or screen as students enter class each day. During your unit on word roots and affixes, challenge students to find the root of today's word. Invite students to create their own personal vocabulary journal using this and other vocabulary tools found from TeachersFirst's vocabulary development listings. Maybe even create a class vocabulary wiki with individual or student group pages and allow students to creatively define and illustrate their new-found words.
