Essential Vocabulary

Explicit! Essential! Challenging! Interesting!  All of these are terms used to describe the vocabulary we are teaching in our classrooms.  If you are like me, I just don't know what words to teach and when to teach them.  Well, not anymore.  I found the Essential Vocabulary list for Kindergarten Common Core.  I created a color-coded packet of these vocabulary words for Language Arts and Math.  (These links will take you to the Indiana Department of Education... Scroll to the bottom to view the list.)  This doesn't mean that I will only teach these words.  This will be my "guide" when determining what vocabulary words my students must know.  Click any of the pictures below to go directly to my TpT store.  These are just a few samples.  There are a total of 49 pages in the purchased packet.

  2. I like the worksheets you created to use with vocabulary words. I teach 2nd grade and I can use these with my students as well. I just found your blog on TpT.

  3. I am glad you like them. I am not sure what words are the same. You are correct, they can be used for second grade too! I priced them reasonable hoping that others would feel the same as you do. Thank you for finding us. My colleague, Kathi, is going to post mini-assessments for 2nd grade math in a few weeks. Follow her on TpT (link is at the top) to be notified when she posts them. I think she may already have some Common Core 2nd grade freebies out there now. She is "Berry Creative". Visit us again!
