Common Core Critical Verbs Vocabulary Instruction FREEBIE

As testing time is nearing for us in Michigan, I am spending a few intentional minutes each day reviewing those CRITICAL Common Core verbs like: analyze, articulate, cite, comprehend, convey, collaborate, etc.  My students cannot do well on "the test" if they do not know what the questions are asking them to accomplish.  Purposeful vocabulary instruction is a MUST for test success!  

I'd love to share with all of YOU a FREE week of the instruction packet I am using for this purpose. I hope you find it as useful as I have.

This FREE packet includes a daily practice sheet for four Common Core critical verbs.  I use these pages Monday through Thursday as a daily warm-up..  It also includes a weekly quiz over the words. We take the weekly quiz every Friday.  An answer key is contained as well for the weekly quiz.  

The intentional, purposeful instruction is helping my students to recognize, use and apply these words on a daily basis.  I even overheard a student last week say to her partner, "You need to articulate your answer more clearly, I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to say."   I almost high fived her.  LOL  Enjoy!!!
