Here is an example:
Last year I had the students write the Word of the Day in a graphic organizer. They would keep the graphic organizer in the pocket of their IMN Folder. When they filled it up they would put the graphic organizer into the prongs of their folder.
Here are some of my students Word of the Day Graphic Organizers.
This year I am definitely keeping that part of my classroom structure. I am going to keep doing the Word of the Day and the Graphic Organizer but I made some tweaks to my idea.
I decided to make the graphic organizers into a booklet that the students will keep in the pocket of their IMN Folder. I am going to have the students use their Academic Vocabulary books in team discussions and in some writing activities and performance tasks. I think that making their Word of the Day Graphic Organizer into a booklet will make it more accessible for them.
I created a cover for the academic vocabulary book and the graphic organizer pages. I am going to send it to the district printer and have it printed and stapled.
Here is the cover of my new academic vocabulary book idea. Updated: (Version 2)
Here are the pages of my new academic vocabulary book idea.
Feel free to use my new idea in your classroom. :o)
