While enjoying my day off after conferences, I just finished my Unit 6 Word of the Day flipchart for our StoryTown vocabulary!
If you're wondering about how my class does Word of the Day, CLICK HERE to read about it!
We LOVE word of the day in my classroom- and we love to find our words in the books we read! The great thing about the StoryTown vocabulary is that it is found in all of the leveled readers, and in the basal texts. I also encourage my students to use their words in their writing. We call them "Juicy Words" and we have a fruit bulletin board with all of the words. That's why there's a fruit theme to my Word of the Day FlipCharts. I *might* post a picture of this bulletin board... if I remember to take one.
Here are some pictures of the flipchart pages from each of the different lessons in Unit 6. We use Step Up to Writing in our district, so I add the parts of speech visuals from there. If you like what you see, you can download the whole Unit 6 FlipChart for free HERE!
Also, I haven't blogged about it yet- I'm still waiting on some copies- but here's a link to the file for the writing resource I use with my class- It's an interactive book with pages for word of the day and many other awesome writing lessons. I'll talk about how the book's set up on another day.
