Seventh Grade Vocabulary Instruction
Seventh grade students are expected to develop a more sophisticated vocabulary in order to read longer, more complex text. So seventh grade teachers must create and implement lessons to build students’ vocabulary knowledge. VocabularySpellingCity supplements seventh grade vocabulary instruction through interactive games and activities. VocabularySpellingCity also assists with administering and assessing vocabulary definitions quizzes and tests.
Seventh grade students should be able to use the relationship between particular words (synonym/antonym, analogy) to better understand each word. Students can use VocabularySpellingCity’s Word Study to better understand word relationships. The activity features syllables, antonyms, synonyms, and parts of speech for each vocabulary term.
In seventh grade, students should also be reading different types of text, including informational text. VocabularySpellingCity offers varied content-specific vocabulary lists in different subject areas. Seventh grade social studies teachers and science teachers alike can use an activity like FlashCards to help students build content area vocabulary, and reinforce concepts taught in the classroom and content specific definitions.
In addition, seventh grade students should be able to choose among simple, compound, and complex sentences to signal different relationships among ideas. Teachers can create assignments that incorporate grammar skills and vocabulary skills through VocabularySpellingCity’s Paragraph Writing Practice. Seventh grade teachers can ask students to create compound and complex sentences using their vocabulary words.
