SBAC Vocabulary Cards
One obstacle that we have found with the upcoming test is a lack of kid -friendly SBAC vocabulary terms. All of the lists that we have found are too difficult for students in grades 3, 4 and 5 to understand. So we have created kid-friendly vocabulary cards for you to review with your students before they take the exam!
Each SBAC vocabulary card will have the following:
-the main vocabulary word at the top in big bold letters
-synonyms for the word so students can relate the word to others they may know
-a kid-friendly definition which will help them understand the SBAC vocabulary at a higher level
Also included will be a student recording sheet, so the student will be responsible to copy the above down for better retention, and to review at home if required before the test.
As an added bonus, we have also included a graphic organizer sheet. You could have your students use for each vocabulary word!
The goal of these cards is obviously to increase comprehension of your students when reading directions. Also, it is for your students to be able to answer the questions more accurately and with more detail.
The use of these cards either at the beginning of the year, after winter break, or right before the test should help your students be more confident in their abilities when reading and following the directions on the test.
