About halfway through this school year, I decided that I would revamp the "Math Dictionary" section of our interactive notebooks just a bit. Don't get me wrong, I really like the Frayer Model:
And, I like having a list of vocabulary words in the beginning of the section:
So, this year I reorganized my lists. The words are now in the order we will come across them. This will make it easier to check, too. Last year, I had to keep track of what number each class was up to when I collected notebooks. This year, students will be responsible for making sure all words are finished from any completed unit. I'm going to have them color-code each unit, just like we color-coded our Table of Contents this year. I'm excited for this change! I'm also thinking of creating my own Frayer template. I want to make my own "cooler looking" version. Has anyone made their own??
