Description

If you are looking for Vocabulary Activities to teach the Standard Vocabulary Acquisition and Use, this is a great resource for you! This resource includes vocabulary activities and all the materials needed to teach primary students to sort, classify and categorize vocabulary words, and to explain how items are classified and categorized and relationships between objects.

Activities begin at the lowest level – sorting, and move to classifying, and finally to identifying words or objects that do not belong to a class or set. These activities may be done as a whole class, with small groups, or individually in a center. They are great for early finishers and ELL students!

Students develop logical reasoning skills when they analyze a group of items and observe their characteristics. They must be able to see patterns and make connections as they sort, group, and classify through comparing things that are similar and contrasting things that display differences.
