First, for no particular reason, I use the back of my notebook for vocabulary. This is how it looked in my composition notebooks.
This is how we kept track of it in the table of contents.
This coming school year, I am using binders for my math notebooks. I plan to have the back still be for vocabulary. Our last divider will be for vocabulary.
I have done many different types of vocabulary.
This is the Frayer model. This was one I used in summer school this summer. These were bigger than I have used in class, but same method.
This was a vocabulary wheel we made this past year.
On the right is a vocabulary wheel without the cover.
On the left, we made a pocket to keep vocabulary note cards.I pinned them here.
I have cut up card stock, students write the word on one side, definition on the other. The right side was flaps we made one day.
Then, this summer I found this. How awesome is this??!!!!
I absolutely LOVE it.
This is from Mrs. Hester's Blog, she has great posts about interactive notebooks. Definitely check her out and prepared to fall in love!
Having these words in their math notebooks makes it easy for me to direct them to use it as we are working. All of these words are posted in my room on the word wall or anchor charts, but for students to have these at their fingertips daily helped a great deal.
So now, I am forced with deciding to make a glossary type dictionary or by units with various methods. I could still do foldables for each unit. But, I really don't have time in my day to do both. Just not sure what to do. I would love to hear your opinions.
