My school uses a book called Vocabulary Workshop which has very challenging words (and I mean- very!) There are 12 words featured for each unit. I’m a 5th grade teacher. I’m thinking of focusing on the SPELLING aspect of the words one week and the following week, have them focus on the definitions, antonyms and synonyms. I’ve done this in the past at the 3rd grade level and it’s worked out perfectly. If I make the vocabulary aspect a bit more challenging, do you feel that should still be age appropriate? Being that I’m in an older grade, I’m afraid of making things too easy for them! But again- Im thinking I can always use the same format (schedule) but just make it more challenging...still just focusing on ONE unit every 2 weeks. Thoughts?
