Nearly all of my students have some type of vocabulary goal. So today I am linking up with Speech Room News to share some of my favorite vocabulary activities.

I love using Linguisystems, Spotlight on Vocabulary books. They are comprehensive, have interactive activities like matching, and plenty of worksheets to let me see what my students know.  Each book as a pre-test and post-test which is very helpful to assess progress.


Next up, the EET  (aka Expaning Expressions Tool ).  This is a fantastic system and my kids ask to use it!  It is a multi-sensory approach that has shown to be very beneficial, especially for my students who typically have a difficult time retaining and recalling information.


Cooking Up Context Clues

Working on context clues has become critical now that it is a Common Core expectation starting in second grade.  I like to use my Cooking up Context Clues with my students.

Speech Corner’s,  Double Dice series has a vocabulary pack that my older students ( 4th and 5th grade ) really enjoy.  There are colorful, real-life pictures of each word to assist in learning and recall.  Depending on what number and shape the student rolls they may have to give a antonym,  use the word in a sentence, identify which word doesn’t belong, or  name items/place/situations related to the vocabulary word.

What are your favorite ways to targets vocabulary?
