K-3 Vocabulary Maps *Freebie*

As an Australian SLP moving to America and working in the schools, I have had to learn a lot of things really fast! With the Common Core State Standards being adopted by most states, many SLPs that I work with have been discussing how we can use our skills to support the curriculum and our students.

One way I have been trialing this are by using Vocabulary Maps.

Vocabulary Word Map K-3: define the word, provide a synonym, provide an antonym, write a sentence using the word and draw a picture of it.

HOW DO YOU MAKE IT CURRICULUM FOCUSED?

I use these maps to support the themed book that my children are reading in class that week. I get a copy of the book from the classroom teacher, along with the assigned ‘vocabulary’ from the unit, and those are the words that we work on. I also give these as homework sheets. So simple, so effective!

Common Core Standards Applications

This Vocabulary Map supports the CCSS for Vocabulary and Acquisition Use for Grades K-3: L.K.4, L.K.4.a, L.1.4, L.2.4, L.3.4. The standard extends each year, but is around determining or clarifying the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases and applying the accurate;y.
