Vocabulary Four Squares

This week I tried something new with the vocabulary in the story.  I got the idea at a First Grade Conference in December.  The student writes the vocabulary word in the middle of the sheet and then there are four things to do with the word.  We completed two of the boxes together as a class and they finished the last two boxes independently.  The kiddos sure had a great grasp of the vocabulary after this.  When we read the story they had fantastic comprehension.


  1. I've used this numerous times. I love it! I've used it when I was doing field experience in both third and fifth grades. I also used it in my student teaching this past semester with my first graders. SO WONDERFUL!

  2. This is fantastic! Thank you so much! The school where I'll be teaching next year doesn't have an official Vocabulary curriculum or list, so it's up to me to do it myself, and this will definitely help. :)

    Magnificent Multiagers!

  3. We really like it. We have a slightly more advanced version over at http://www.teacherbrain.com.au. We'd love if you'd check it out!
