FREE Word of the Week Worksheet


Today I am once again linking up with The Teaching Tribune to bring you "Worksheet Wednesday" and with Classroom Freebies for "Manic Monday." Every year I introduce Word of the Week to my students, and it becomes part of their morning routine. On Mondays, I have them write down the word, the part of speech, and the definition. On Tuesdays, I share with them the use of the word in a sentence and they write their own sentence. I then walk around and read their sentences, as well as have a few students share their 'elaborate' sentence.  Wednesday mornings, students illustrate their sentences. Thursdays they look up, or discuss, synonyms, antonyms and rate their understanding of the word. Lastly, on Fridays they share their worksheets with a partner. 

The worksheet I am sharing with you today is the Word of the Week worksheet that my students work on each morning. It is part of a Word of the Week yearlong resource available for grades 2-4 and 4-7. 


You can find the complete grades 4-7 resource by clicking on the picture below. 



Do you do word of the week with your students? How do you teach it?


Your Thrifty Co-Teacher,

  1. Thank you so much for the freebie! I do a word of the week center every week and I had another worksheet for it but my kiddos would always get to part of speech (no matter how much we went over it and even though we did the same center every week) and ask "What's part of speech?" So I love that you have it formatted so that they just circle noun, verb or adjective. Brilliant!

    1. I am so glad you have found this product useful for your classroom. I too have had to modify my word of the week a couple of times until I finally found something that worked for me and the students. Enjoy!

    1. You're so welcome. I finally found a groove with the word of the week. I found that going over it a little each day (5-10 minutes max), really gave the students ownership of the word.
