FREE Word of the Week Worksheet


Every year, the Word of the Week becomes part of our classroom morning routine. It has been a great way to help increase students' word acquisition, and has quickly become one of our favorite (and most competitive) vocabulary activities. To help the routine run smoothly, we following the schedule below: 

  • On Mondays, students write down the word of the week, the part of speech, and its 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.  A couple of the best sentences get chosen to be posted up in the classroom on an index card. 
  • 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 year long resource available for grades 2-4 and 4-7. You can sign up below to receive this free worksheet in your inbox.

    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.
