Vocabulary Strategies for a Fourth Grade Classroom
Howell, Gina
Online Submission
For this project I worked with twelve of my fourth grade students from a local school in the southwestern part of Stokes County, North Carolina on increasing their vocabulary skills through the development and implementation of seven vocabulary strategies. During the Literature Review I came across the following seven strategies: Prediction; Association; Verification; and Evaluation (P.A.V.E) procedure; Vocabulary Anchors, semantic webs, concept cards; Pictionary; Jeopardy, and Word sorts. These seven different vocabulary strategies were presented over the course of a seven week period. After Christmas break my students always seem to struggle remembering the vocabulary words from the beginning of the year. Each goal's vocabulary words build on the previous goals. When students forget the vocabulary words from the previous units it keeps them from beginning the next goal. Appended are: (1) Data Collection Matrix; (2) Goal 1 Pre-test/Post-test; (3) Student Portfolio Checklist; (4) Student Journal; (5) Teacher Journal; (6) Teacher Observation Journal (Entire Class); (7) Learning Center Worksheet; (8) Student Progress Report; and (9) Student Interview.
