Vocabulary "Word Rep" Cards

Students study a different unit of grade level vocabulary words every 4 weeks.  At the beginning of every unit, students are assigned one word that they are in charge of.  Whenever this word is discussed, they are the representative and expert for that word.  One of their jobs as a "word rep" is to create a card that displays the word visually.  The best cards create a word wall in our classroom to reference throughout the unit.  
CA ELA Standard R1.0 - Students use their knowledge of word origins and word relationships, as well as histori­ cal and literary context clues, to determine the meaning of specialized vocabulary and to understand the precise meaning of grade-level-appropriate words.
